Away from the Winter Blues

This time exposure of the twilight period revealed wonderful colours. I just love the soft
pink hues of the sky. It once again reminds me of this wonderful time of day which we
do not explore sufficiently. We have 365 opportunities each year, but year after year it
goes past unutilised. The composition is neat with all the main feature appearing at the
correct axis lines.
Well done and TFS.
PS. I hope you got that flu beaten and you are ok now.

This is a wonderful landscape shot displaying excellent colours. I like the foreground interest in the silhouetted rock and beach and I like the silhouetted mountains on the horizon. I also think that the reflection of everything in the water looks really good.
Great capture and TFS
It is wonderful how the set sun is reflected on the clouds and that is again reflected on the water. It gives the entire image a wonderful warm glow and really helps me away from the winter weather we are having.
The long exposure is very beautiful. Especially the motion captured in the clouds is great. It sort of channels the eye.
Reading your note, a few things came to mind. First was reciprocity failure. Something that happens when exposing for such a long time. The result of reciprocity failure is under exposure and therefore you had the lighten the picture a little. Second, was look on top of your camera. I believe you can engage the little light on your top LCD and then you can see the seconds of exposure as it counts. Much easier then counting elephants in Scotland. :) Third, counting the exposure difference with the use of a ND filter. I guess adding 3 stops to your shutter speed is still OK today but I prefer to be exact. That is why I downloaded a little application on my mobile phone that does the calculation for me. It comes in really handy when using my 10 stop ND filter.
As for the lightening, it did produce some noise. But all in all, I really like what I am seeing and love the mood you’ve captured.
Oops, I need to correct something here. reciprocity failure is something I´ve just learned but is only falid for film and not digital. But the extra second needed when calculating does count....sorry

Thanks for sharing this very sophisticated view which is indeed very pleasing to the eye. The soft colours are in perfect harmony with one another and a pleasure to look at. It is an absolute serene representation that has a calming effect on the whole being. Your camerawork is excellent. Best regards.
Snow, what snow? ;o)
We've had hardly any in Bournemouth, and little we did has now turned to slush and melting away.
Anyway, lovely effect of the long exposure - suprised to hear that manual is new for you though?! The little stone in the bottom left is well placed and really anchors the whole shot.

Hope you'll be doing fine and fully recovered from flu which is one human ailment I dread most as I am a college teacher and it kills me when I suffer from it, for I cannot deliver lectures....smile.Thanks a lot for comments on my mating butterflies photo. I am new as compared to you, I had to visit your page and had to read whatever life story you had shared with friends here, to know who you were and I am really glad to meet you, feel honoured. The older shots were splendid as is this one with a lot of photography techniques thrown in it...a wonderful photo indeed, love landscapes and love Scottish countryside for I am a student of English Literature and have done my masters in it. I love to read William Henry Hudson and Gilbert White to get a glimpse of old England and Great Britain most of which has now vanished.Being in a hurry cannot quote others. You are one hell of a photographer and it was a sheer delight to roam around in your world as I did over the past half an hour....hope to stay in touch in future too and loved all those photos...great taste....take care....warmest regards/Abid
