Omaha Beach is around 50 kilometres north of Auckland city, near the town of Warkworth. A feature of this beach, popular with some of the more affluent of Auckland who have holiday homes here, are the coloured shells which wash up on the beach, especially after a period of easterly wings. The island on the horizon is Little Barrier, New Zealand's first fully protected wildlife sanctuary, dating from the 1880s. A special permit is required to visit.

Very good quality!
The light management, the perspective and framing are also flawless!

So did you use a flash to enlighten the lower fg? looks like it, and it was worth it.
I like how the lighting hits the bubbles too.
I know the beach looks cool with all the colored shells, but it also makes it more difficult to walk on the beach! ouch!!!
a very different beach shot...i like it.
thanks for this one
