Flashback from [I think best so far] holidays. It was over two years ago and we visited several European countries and three seas :-) This picture was taken during trip by ship over Marmara Sea. We travelled with our Turkish friends Sebnem and Ekrem - it feels like twenty years ago! Anyway - after watching beautifull and colorfull views of Istanbul we saw this old prison island. It was grim and gray and reminded me an old tales about Flying Dutchman and pirates' treasures hidden somewhere on islands like this one :-)

Mglista gora na morzu. Lekko skrzywiony horyzont ale widok piekny z super nastrojem. I jeszcze te delikatne odblaski slonca na falach :-)

It looks like the top of the head of a great gorilla rising up out of the sea
.... or maybe thats just the mushrooms %}

Hi Grzegorz,
impressive image of this foggy sea-scape.
Fantastic composition with a perfectly straight horizon.
I love the eerie atmosphere created by the fog.
Superb photo.
Well done,

The hazy sky usually means fine weather. And the little diamonds twinkling on the water means the sun's trying to shine through.
This reminds me of some of the off shore islands in the north of New Zealand. You haven't been visiting NZ without me knowing? I hope not...
Good one Greg
