Late Afternoon in Marazion

After photographing a surf competition at Perranuthoe, which was rubbish due to the lack of surf, I headed to Marazion to finish off the day.
Blinded by the sun a Perranuthoe but mostly clouded out at Marazion only 2 miles away (sods law) Anyway pleased I got the Kingfisher on the post to prove it does occasionally land there. Also had the opportunity to test the low light level performance of the Nikon D3s which was good as following today with some exposures using ISO 3200 I now have the confidence to push it further. Onto the images:

Kingfisher on the depth post

Mallards during a glimpse of sunlight

Kingfisher leaving the water, missed his quarry.
