Landscape of the day #2

I was working out at Fortescue Beach the other day and happened to snap off a couple of photos with my new Canon 7D. I was there to take down signage from beach closures to protect foraging areas for endangered red knots and other shorebirds. Horseshoe crabs were still spawning and nest depressions and lime colored eggs were all over the beach. It was quite a sight!
