Looks like the Needles? (But I'm probably wrong! )

I thought it looked a bit like Old Harry?

I'm fascinated by the "back from the developer" bit... you're using film?

The ' rocky outcrop' is Old Harry-Studland.
We were around by Poole bar buoy when I took them.
Yeah I'm still using film-cheap disposable waterproof camera.
That way if it gets trashed then its only a few quid gone-and they float.I was up to my chest in the water when I took the beach pic.
My digital camera isn't waterproof and I'd rather fill my tanks twice than buy a new one...

Handling is great-the flap thing seems to work really well.
I can back off the throttle once on the plane and stay on the plane at 10mph with hardly any throttle
as long as I sit forward on the seat-and the holeshot from a hard turn is loads better as the hull doesnt have time to fill.

The beach looks like Studland

I was interested to read that a lot of photographers are going back to film for some photographs because the quality of digital is comparatively so bad the article said that in ideal conditions a 35mm negative was the equivalent of 20 million pixels and that wet photo print paper exceeded printers dpi considerably Des

Good idea... the waterproof housings are great, but cost as much as the camera!
