This is just a bonus shot. Gull flew by me and landed with this tennis ball. It wedged it in the sand and tried to eat it.

I give you credit taking your camera down to the beach.

Are you worried the sand is going to cause problems?

Not at all. My only real concern would be sand getting inside the camera, which is why I refrain from removing the lens at the beach.

Really sharp. Perhaps very wise not removing your lens at the beach. Sand can be mircoscopic.

The sea gull shot is a great rare candid - a case of being in the right place at the right time to get a unique photo. The surfer shot is excellent. I love the way the water looks - it gives a great sense of movement and speed. Great job on both photos.

these are both good widow.. i like the composition and the processing on the surfer shot.. very dynamic..

as long as you use some common sense.. i.e. don't change lenses in a sand storm or within the salt spray.. i would not worry much about your equipment.. a dslr is pretty rugged in reality.. and if you get a little dust on the sensor, its quite easy to clean up.. bottom line, what good is having a camera if you afraid to take it out????
