For you guys outside of the UK, this photo was taken at a small seaside town called Blackpool, NW England. The beach used to be infamous for the dumping of raw sewage.

Allegedly it has be cleaned up a lot but below the surface who knows......

Longside, I personally prefer a bit more colour, and a contrast increase [I downloaded the pic and using "levels", moved the "black point" slider in a bit, then increased the saturation on the red and yellow colours only] My preference only

yeah, see what you mean, I also prefer your edit, it seems to bring out a little more gold in the sand and low level clouds.

many thanks jaketpegg

And then you can play around a bit more with asome Contrast Masking and come up with a different feel altogether [hope you don't mind me doing this, longside!, some people do mind editing their shots, however, it is the way I have learned [am learning]] :-)

That's a very beautiful shot L1 which is full of relief, and the adequate edit by jaketpegg surely enhances it.
