this picture really shows how miserable England is... cloudy, hazy, horrendous waves, crazy swing tide, kooks riding crappy retro boards. All around miserable atmosphere

horrendous waves?? just cause it's far away doesn't mean there's no waves! look close and you might just spot a reeling righthander...

you do have ages to walk! up the beach and then along sharp little rocks which stab into your feet!

Great shot. I love the incline - makes his trudge up the beach look even more arduous...

Captures it well - one of those where it feels like ages to walk out, with the increasing roar as you go

I think that it's just fine as it is.

Level the horizon? That's the way it is and the only way to level it would be with a fleet of fooking great bulldozers! Have a look at the base of the Magow Rocks (the dark ones in the foreground of the background if you know what I mean). Level ;)

I'm not convinced the pic needed fixing. I did something rather technical (tilted my computer to the right to level horizon - don't try this at home unless you're highly trained), and the guy looked like he was falling over. In my experience, when the beach is less high than the ocean, the beach becomes ocean. Counter-examples to that are mostly biblical.

would be even better if you could spell horizon properly and hills aren't always straight so his horizon line is fine

Thanks for that. I agree. I've just straightened the original out now for reprinting - sometimes you just don't catch it all - waves and photographs!!
