Hi Stephen
Beautiful shot of this nice place. I really like action of the water.

Hello Stephen!
Very beautiful seascape with fantastic light, details and POV.
I like it a lot.

Hi Stephen, you have another fabulous shot here. The low point from which it has been taken has given an amazing perspective, showing curvature on the rocks. Perfect exposure, light and colour. Excellent.

Lovely landscape again, Stephen.
I like very much how you isolated the island near the horizon.
Very lovely colours and nice atmosphere. It is great when a long exposure comes out like this, with precise saturations.
BTW: Today I saw in TV your lovely basalt formations in aereal view. Just wondeful :)
Best regards, Felipe.

Hi Steve

Another magnificent and powerful landscape shot from you!
The effect creted on the water here by the very long shutter makes it look like and energy field from the older SciFi movies :) (or maybe my imagination is running wild) :))
The mood here is really terrific and the rocks present amazing textures everywhere.
Superb work, once again!

Bravo, TFS and Happy Easter!

Hi Stephen,
Interesting composition of light. with dark clouds, a patch of blue ocean and the rocks, all working into one direction. And then the funny golden island at the horizon.
Well done and TFS

Hi Stephen

Not only am I impressed by your photographic abilities, but your scenery is stunning. Awesome to view my friend. Thank you! :-)

Hi Stephen.
Very beautiful. Very moody with the dark clouds looming. Nice composition with the placement of all the various elements. Well done.
Regards, Steve.

Superbe endroit bien photographié.

Wow! What great POV. Well seen. I love the intrusion of the rocks from the left. I enjoyed this one too. Great.

Hi Steve,
A very spectacular view of this beautiful coastline. The lighting with the illuminated rock formation on the left is very stunning. I like the effect of the chosen shutter speed since it created an almost simular texture of sea and clouds. This was probably a good Wellies moment again.
