Oh this was so hard! I asked for the beauty, atmosphere and excitement of being beside the sea, and I got it in spades. I would have liked to choose at least 30 for the shortlist so I will try to give my reasons for selecting each one.

 

1. Lake Huron in winter by Jill Morgan: the seaside can be just as beautiful in winter.

2. Children by Michael Ventura: the seaside is all about being a child, whether you're 8 or 80.

3. Beach in Hawaii by Ed Rooney: Yes, it's a manufactured shot but for me it captures the end of a perfect day by the sea.

4. Funfair wheel by Avpics: I included excitement in  the brief - how more exciting can you get? (Rather you than me...)

5. Waiting for sunrise in Bali by cbimages: just beautiful and full of atmosphere.

6. "Waves" sculpture by TeeCee: an imaginative take on the subject.

7. Amorous penguins by meanderingemu: the seaside isn't all about sun, sea and people.

8. Girls jumping into the water by Colblimp: if this doesn't capture the sheer enjoyment of being at the seaside, I don't know what does.

So... we have a winner! It was neck and neck most of the way but the winner broke clear in the final furlong - Colonel Blimp's girls jumping into the water.

 

Well done Andy - now over to you to set this month's challenge.

Oh dear.  Thanks very much for all your kind words and special thanks to Alan for setting such a good subject and everyone who entered.

 

I'll put my thinking cap on and set something up either tonight or tomorrow.
