  1. Like this shots reminds me of my hometown in the Philippines. When it is low tide people will go to the beach and look for shells, clams or even crabs not just for fun but to cook for lunch hehehe. Thanks for joining Water World Wednesday I do appreciate it Nix!

  3. Gorgeous pictures. We used to love to go "tidepooling" in the Pacific Ocean (hope we get to do it again this summer, as we're visiting in Oregon).

  8. Nice one Nick. I do like the distance you have achieved by getting down low and creating a foreground. The couple in the distance create the perspective perfectly.

  9. Great shots Nick of a fascinating area - I have some happy memories of trips there whilst living in Melbourne for 10 months back in 2003-4. Travelled there by both car and ferry to gain different perspectives. Thanks for sharing and stirring up my memory bank!
