    Spectacular Peter – well timed. I especially love your composition – the way the pier draws you into the picture, the mauve tones and lighting on the horizon are great contrasts too. I don’t think you were lucky! This looks like a well thought out shot to me!

  • I did a few back flips when I see this on the back of the camera, it was luck though, for every good one I got, I missed some absolute beauties!

    Thanks :-)
