I had a surprise visitor while waiting for a group of birds to work their way down to my end of the beach. The wind was blowing the sand quite fiercely when I took this photo, which I thought was a nice element.

Superb shot John in all regards.  Fab low angle and the luminosity takes it into another level.  Large view a treat.  As mentioned the sand flying around adds a nice touch.
Make your life spectacular!

Beautifully done, John. You have taken us down into their world with this wonderful eye level view, the details are excellent and the windblown sand gives the scene a timeless quality that enhances an already great shot. A beauty!

Very interesting crab subject in terrific light. The low angle really works perfectly particularly showing the blowing sand.

Wonderful and unusual shot! I like how the crab looks like it might be on the move, and as mentioned, the blowing sand adds a lot of interest. Congratulations of your EP!
