    All I have seemed to take photo's of this past week was the coast. All very similar though. I'll start off with this (although I guess it is not a true seascape). This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK, Three Cliffs Bay. Scruffy gits can't be bothered to take the litter home with them!

    Very nice Catriona, it has a soft look reminisant of a pinhole shot, that IMO works really well for this :)

    I have some shots like this taken in the Gower (south Wales) - does anybody know why the sand is this colour?

    Sand varies depending on its constituents which will be be stone and shell whatever spoil the local industry has produced.
    I suspect (assuming the white bits are what we talking about) the white bits are shell that have been sifted to the surface as they are less dense than the sand from the local sandstone. The darker bits will probably be coal from the local coal seems being exposed on the sea bed. The golden sands beach in Whitehaven's outer harbour is mostly black from coal deposits from the mines and coal exports close by. The sandstone here at St Bees is very red but at Parton it is yellow
