First of all, thanks for all your (mostly) positive comments on the new version of chromasia: I'm glad you like it. And for those of you who didn't drop by yesterday: please have a look at my comments on yesterday's entry where I describe some of the changes I've made to the site.

One thing I will mention again, as it seems to have generated a fair amount of interest so far, we're developing a series of subscription based photoshop tutorials, centred around the images on chromasia, that we'll be launching towards the end of next month. The subscriptions should be reasonably inexpensive and if you'd like to read a bit more about them and register your interest, please take a look at this page:

As for this shot: the beach at Blackpool is relatively flat, and what you see here is the incoming tide, a sandbank (on which these people are standing), and the sea and sky beyond that. I don't think they were aware of quite how fast the tide can come in as they ended up running through the water to get back to the beach. Two minutes earlier John and I had walked over dry sand to get to this spot, but by the time they ran across it was at least a foot deep. John has posted a similar shot this evening.

As always, let me know what you think. Personally, I like this one.
