Phalaropes as Art

I stopped off at Wick of Ireland again this morning and found the Grey Phals had increased to six! The weather was incredible - force 9 northerly gale, heavy snow showers and sea-spray everywhere. All the ingredients for some arty-farty shots that I wanted to create in order to portray just how rough a Phalaropes life must be in these conditions. I experimented using slow shutter speeds hoping that the breaking surf would give me a couple of stops for correct exposure and then I set ridiculously high ISO speeds with high f stops to introduce a real raw feel to the images.
