Cheers Peter,

I was sitting in the pub garden with my wife and just had to say "I'm popping over the road to take a few photos".

I left the colours a bit "cooler" than PS would suggest.

Its taken with the new Nikkor 18-35 zoom- a fabulously sharp piece of glass.

Excellent capture Ralph . Impressive new lens :)

Thanks Marg, I have the "old" version too, but knew straightaway in the camera viewer that it was streets better...plus this beach is a favourite location for me.

The cooler colour space really works in this beach scene. Excellent artistic judgement. Definitely #####. (5 sharps out of 5).

Glad you agree TWS, thanks for looking in.

Anytime Mr. B. . How's the small biggles coming along. Seems to be adapting to world travel very well. Mind she doesn't go over the top with wanderlust.

She's a great little lady, 1yr old last week. Wouldn't mind if she got the wanderlust, I'd be happy to show her around!

Years ago I did a solo round the World trip, and I met some very interesting families who were eaching their kids while they toured the globe...some of the children were pretty rounded characters.

Apparently not Roger, I got "Null Points" from the German judge. But I'll take your judgement as you can take a good picture.

Was it less than 80 days round the world. Do you travel competitively.

Ha: It was probably 100 days, I had a bit of pressure to be back home to help run the family business! Would have loved it to have been longer.

Another Masterpiece.

I'm blushing at such praise, not sure masterpiece...very kind comment.

Hope it wasn't over pressure. Travel can be stressful. You fly RR class. What's the marking on the cowls.

What sort of power train do they put in these old marine hulls?

Thanks Meg,

Takes a good sky to get me out of the pub!
