When a storm blows in from the Sou'West we see varying conditions here.
In this case we saw amazingly still water before all h___ broke loose.

I hope you enjoy the changing scenes as much as I do.

Hi Jay,
Great, Great Seascape, love the lighting and everything else. I LIKE IT ALOT.
Happy Holidays, Rick

Love the dark and light, AND the last-minute show of the sun through the clouds which have nicely illuminated the surface of the bay!!
Are those lobster pot floats that I see there??
AND you've done a great job of capturing that gull in flight.......did you have to pay him to appear just so???
Good photo!!!

Very nice shot, good reflection on the sea!
Bye tom

very suggestive scene.

hi mario

Hello Jay,
The shimmering sea is quite awesome in this fine composition!
A beautiful landscape captured in the typical December light, a fine and moody capture to convey the Christmas spirit...
Merry Christmas to you and yours, my friend!

Hi Jay

Another stunning seaside photo from you!
I really love the composition here - it's wonderful!
Also the bright reflection is very beautiful and it contrast superbly with the dark-stormy clouds from above the horizon.
The lines of the shore are great, too, the exposure is excellent and the small inclusion of the bird is fantastic!
Truely beautiful work!

Bravo and TFS

Hello Jay! You waited for exactly the right moment; the seagull entering the ray of light--marvellous composition of a very dramatic sky! The colours in the water are wonderful--pinks and greys and mauves, silver and green. Great eye! Thank you! Linda

Great shot Jay, keep on shareing!

Great photo Jay, definitely captures the Nova Scotia spirit.

Hi Jay
beautiful seascape with a great composition and a dramatic sky over a fantastic silver sea
light and exposition are perfect

Hi Jay

Wow... you really caught the moment here! The silvery illumination of the water is an amazing catch, but in my opinion, the bird makes the shot! Congrats!

Your sea and sky capture the essence of calm. Cool hues of grey and silver create a winter feel. Nice details and composition.
TFS Janice

Hello Jay.
