Thanks John and Algi.

Yes John I'm trying to get used to the monster by using it as often as I can. This was taken on my knees in the sand with a very strong wind blowing up my rear end. And the tide edging nearer.

Cheers,

Howard

Wouldn't a tripod have been easier and who pressed the shutter whilst you were in that position

Nice shot
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

As soon as I added that comment and reread it I knew there would be somebody making a wisecrack. Ah well, all harmless.
