    Great exposure Werner, love the clear skies and the nice clouds. A very nice exposure considering the time of day mate!

  • thanks Jason – it was about 9:30 or 10am and the sun was quite strong from the direction of the headland on the left of the beach – I was extremely lucky to find that cloud formation to give the sky a bit of interest – greatly appreciate the feature

    wonderful beach scene I could go for that now !LIZ

  • thanks Liz – yes, it’s a great looking place and quite unique: a bit of a walk to the cliff edge, and then a tunnel (hence the name) down to the beach itself
