Thanks both.

Paul..No-one who has seen the B&W wave photo thinks it's better than the colour one either -they all like the colour too and as I say, I'd go for it myself.We're planning on going back sometime between Jan 4-31.I really want to see the storms,it;'s just a matter of getting a long range forecast  but a week is a good stretch,I should get something,the place we're looking at is at that Mullion Bay- you can see the beach and rocks from the living room and with the 100-400 I should be able to photograph any rough seas even if it's raining.

Anton..you jest BUT....Would you believe it. I did something I shouldn't have done. It was quite windy-not a gale but I knew I was in a wind. Re. the Mullion Bay photos-the sea scapees I wanted to get a shot from 'round the corner'  on the cliff face pathway so being a wimp lol.. I sat on my behind and edged along the narrow pathway just 2 feet from the edge - I was afraid to walk upright. As I 'bounced' along I heard a helicopter and looked up to see the red coast guard rescue helicopter passing overhead ,possibly en-route back to base at Culdrose -I took it as a warning from above  Grin  stopped where I was and inched, bounced my way back. I was safe really and anyone else would have just walked round that bend but I suffer from vertigo, I  even get that 'funny feeling' looking up at  very tall,  skyscraper type buildings. Roll Eyes
