New Year, new camera, new photos

In early December, while shooting at Sedgefield beach, a big wave rolled in and knocked my tripod with my Canon 650D and Sigma 10-20mm lens on it, over!
It was covered by insurance, and after a lengthy decision-making process, I bought a new Olympus EM-5 witth the 12-40mm PRO lens as well as a Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye.
I am VERY happy with the EM-5 - the dynamic range and image quality is much better than the Canon.
I've spent a bit of time on various beaches around Wilderness, Sedgefield & Knysna - mainly at sunrise and sunset - (getting up at 4:00am isn't that much fun, but once you're on the beach, it's a stunning time of day.
The sunrises and sunsets haven't been that stunning, so I've been concentrating on rock formations and shooting quite a bit in black and white which I'm really enjoying.
Below are some images that I've captured...
