    These are great!

    I don't have much to offer but will now be on the lookout for something to add. Here's one I took when I was pretty hungry, maybe that explains the appeal!

    Helen,

    Great idea for a thread and excellent sign. Was there any further context to this sign?

    Hello.
    Was a surprise to see. Was walking along beach a couple of miles to the where the kiteboarders were doing their thing.
    400D + Sigma 12-24 @12mm F8, maybe landscape mode some sharpening, maybe too much but needed some. No other adjustments.
