    Well, as I am well over 60 miles inland I had to come up with a different interpretation of this months theme just to get any kind of shot.

    Took this today whilst out walking round a local golf course, had to wait by a par 3 and talk nicely to two players who let me take a few shots, most of them were crap, but having zoomed about a bit to find a decent crop section I came up with this.

    I used to watch quite a lot of American golf on the TV, anfd they had certain phrases that they used a lot, one of which was 'He's on the beach with that shot' in that usual, almost derisary American accent.

    This has been cropped from a larger picture, colour adjusted a little and a small sharpen to make the sand more defined. Added a little border too.

    1/1000 f3.5

    I was going to inbed the image but have not really sorted out webspace yet. Shame because the compression has blurred it a bit :(

    That has to be one of the worst looking bunkers I've ever seen, just look at the stones and rubbish top left :lesson:
    Have to admit I've never been big on golf, used to have a knock around when I was younger but with 9 holes consisting of 10 minutes of hitting the ball followed by a couple of hours trying to locate it the fascination wore of very quickly :boring:
    Pity there were people around Steve as I think the addition of a sandcastle would have helped the composition no end :D

    I agree about the sandcastle to be honest. I was trying to convince Lorna to get her bikini out and pose in the bunker, but the old fellows playing golf would have had a heart attack! :laugh:
