Love that sunrise! The minimalist feel is awesome and is that a wet sandy bay at low tide? Either way I think it's a great shot! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Hi Iguanasan, it was Dublin bay this morn, the tide was just starting to come back in, twenty minutes later I would have been up to my waist in the Irish sea. Thanks for looking.

I agree- the sunrise shot is stunning. What is the second structure?

Hi Bambi, it is a beach shelter. Somewhere to hide from the wind and the rain during a traditional Irish Summer. There are move further along the coast that were used as men's and women's changing areas. On the other side of the sae wall would have been a popular swimming area before pollution and shipping lanes ruined it. Some people still swim here but usally there is charity fund-raising involved!

Thank you for the kind comments, I got lucky with the weather, it has reverted to sideways rains showers again. Much more typical for this time of year!
