OMG - I truly never thought this was a blue ribbon winner especially in a free study. i was expecting maybe a top ten at the very best.

It is an image of old sea defences taken at dawn on Spurn Point, which is a spit of sand sticking out into the mouth of the river Humber, UK.
The wind was 60mph which was blowing clouds and water around to give these incredible patterns.

Thanks for the votes and comments, much appreciated.
