[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the first shots I took when I moved to the West Coast a couple of years ago.
This was taken on my old 2 megapixel Lumix,and looking northwards towards the afternoon sun,which explains the contrast betweeen the dark landmass and the (OE0 glittering sea.
I still thought it was a pleasant enough image to post ... so here it is.
The grassy area in the middle distance is all land for sale at the tiny settlement of 12 Mile.
Within a few years I expect it will be dotted with buildings. Oh well ... thats progress.

Hope you like it.

Yep, do like it alot..especially the reflected glare on the plants in the FG, really nice. The little patch of beach down below your viewpoint helps add loads of dpeth.
Hope the developers keep their greedy hands off of that amazing looking grassy spot for as long as possible...

Hello Steve
What a wonderful scene you captured,
Perfect composition,lighting and POV,
Superb shot,my friend


Hi Steve,
Beautiful photo,congratlation.

Hi Steve,
I like Your old photo very much. Nice seascape, the water almost looks like covered with ice. This shot perfectly shows if something's old, it isn't necessary bad. At least I love it, great POV and playing with lights. Tfs, regards, László
