I'm a city guy now living by the beach (well, closer than the N Train to Coney Island). I've always wanted to take my gear down to Laguna Beach or Dana Point. No...not Holgas or toy cams , but my medium format and my future LF (he he, working on something). How do you keep the tripod from sinking into the soft wet sand while shooting? And I'm sure you rinse it and dry it when done? I love shots where I know the camera is right in middle of the water and I think "omg! what if falls! that's an expensive repair!"
