I managed to get out for an hour this afternoon and went down to the beach with my friend John from shotsphotography. I took my macro lens and managed to get at least three, maybe four shots that I'm happy with. I was also snapped by John and it's one of the very few portraits of myself that I'm happy with, so thanks John.

As for this shot: it was the last one I took today and, despite appearances to the contrary, this is a relatively straight shot – the light reflected from these binoculars was spectacular. The view through them was pretty awesome too: we could see the north coast of Wales, what was probably the Isle of Man, and a gas drilling platform burning a column of flame on the horizon. It was a good afternoon.

PS: this isn't a shot of John, this is a guy we met as we were leaving the beach.
