Very interesting light. I like how it simultaneously makes me admire the beauty and wonder if this is an end of the world scene.
tim hitchins: yes Urv, strong sunshine is not something you want with seascapes but it worked with the light on the rocks with this one i feel. Cheers Urvsmile

Lol at Chris' comment and your reply! The Isle GB is so rich an gorgeous, rough-wild coast- land-and seascapes where you meeting the pure powerful nature! I like the sea-washed and weather-beaten stones and the greenish seaweed and I can smell the salty air and hear the seagulls crying - a good composition, only the water could look a bit more glittering more fluent, more like water (but you know my point)!
Definitely chocolateysmile
tim hitchins: lol, yes a bit of a twiddle going on here from some tutorials i downloaded, never even realized the sea looked like Galaxy lol
Glad to be back too! Excellent shot and processing for a change.

There is this 'melting' quality (referred to earlier by Richard as chocolate), almost as if the exposure was a long one and things moved slightly. It is stunningly three dimensional in the thirds format. Beautiful shot. Luscious.
Stunning! Mike
tim hitchins: so happy you thought so Mikesmile

Can't believe I missed this one before. Beautiful tones and softness of the sea and sky. Great light.
tim hitchins: most appreciated Travis, normally the best conditions are cloudy ones for long exposure shots like this but yes the sun lighting up the foreground was a bonus heresmile
