Hi again everyone,
I hope you all had some lovely holidays and that getting back to work didn't hit you very bad :)

I'm back in Poland now and just wanted to kick off 2011 with another shot from Hel Peninsula - this time one from the beach from Chałupy. It was a bit strange to me to see such big ice on the sea shore and i wanted to capture that in some photos. This is one of them...hope you'll like it :)

Hi Bogdan.
I have read Your profile. So I presume, that You are studying in Poland (Gdansk?). When I was in the end of high school and in the beginning od study I had been going to Chalupy for holidays with my friends. It's also incredible to me to see ice in the Baltic Sea. Great colours and nice composition.
I think You used sigma 10-20 to take this picture.
Have a nice Sunday,


  • Great

Hello Horia,
You composed very successful landscape with interesting colours and excellent perspective.
Regards, Pawel

Hi Horia,

A very beautifully composed landscape. A perfect example of one-third rule with sky forming one-third of the picture and water and ice forming remaining two-third. Great depth as well. A great way to welcome 2011.

Thank you for sharing.
