I envy you for wonderful time that you have. But I am young and I still need to work to get to your age and time. In my retired expectations, I will continue to admire another’s work. And I will to dream to a calm and warm life, exactly like your photo. TFS, Oana

i am back from the two days business trip till sunday, monday i will be off to a 6 days business trip again, till then i want to enjoy being here and looking at this post certainly makes me happy, reading the notes makes me feel like doing it, sipping juice enjoying the beauty of nature and that too with my better half, the mood has been presented so well with natural shades, fine pov and a balanced composition,
you have very correctly mentioned about the mishaps as people take it lightly and the carelessness an cost even life.

another beauty from all that time ago. The elements in it, Bird, Early pinkish light, Ocean and general topography make this feel a little primeval to me...great place to have a doughnut too! Nicely framed and exposed.

There is an attractive rosiness about this scanned slide Bob.
I don't just mean the colour of the sunrise on the clouds, but the spray mist over the sea.
That is sharply in contrast with the FG, the sharp silhouettes of the rocks and the foamy sea coming from the breakers.
Looks like the Mendocine Coast is, or at any rate was, a photographer's paradise.

The downright duality of this picture - in combination with the remarkable and emotional notes - makes this picture an outstanding one. It is, on one hand, romantic and peaceful, on the other hand wild and stormy. A complex atmosphere and expression that asks the spectator to spent the necessary time for a deep contemplation.

Another beautiful and nostalgic seascape. I have only seen a sky this shade of pink in pictures. So perfect with the seagull flying through the sky. The water, waves and rocks give the scene a sense of drama.

Bonjour M. Shannon, étant une amoureuse de l'océan, j'adore cette photo et imagine très bien le vent et l'embrun sur le visage. Merci, c'est très beau et ces souvenirs sont aussi touchants qu'avant. Bye bye!

I will not bore you with platitudes Bob..
The others here have surpassed any attempt I might make to quantify.. Photographically speaking of course :)
I will simply say I like what I see, and the story behind the lens..

There is again something so nostalgic in your picture. And at first I didn't realise that this shot had been taken 30 years ago! Amazing atmosphere proper to this special moment in the day, moment we unfortunately almost always miss. It's paradise on earth! Very mystical and touching picture

The sunrise is giving nice colors to the sky, to the sea and a set of shadows to the rocks. The presence of the bird is adding another type of life to the scenery. The point of view takes us toward the horizon which is giving depth to the picture. The capture of the waves movement is an asset to the composition. have a nice day.
