[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A sea cave, also known as a littoral cave, is a type of cave formed primarily by the wave action of the sea. The primary process involved is erosion. Sea caves are found throughout the world, actively forming along present coastlines and as relict sea caves on former coastlines. In places like Thailand's Phang Nga Bay, solutional caves have been flooded by the rising sea and are now subject to littoral erosion.
The driving force in littoral cave development is wave action. Erosion is ongoing anywhere that waves batter rocky coasts, but where sea cliffs contain zones of weakness, rock is removed at a greater rate along these zones. As the sea reaches into the fissures thus formed, they begin to widen and deepen due to the tremendous force exerted within a confined space, not only by direct action of the surf and any rock particles that it bears, but also by compression of air within.( in Wikipedia )

Hello Pedro,
This is a very impressive and beautiful image; I'm amazed. This POV is very stunning and I like those superb details and DOF. I wish I could have seen your camera settings for this one. Excellent picture with very interesting notes and great mood. Thanks,

Well done Pedro.
I like the diagonal lines I see in this composition. Interesting formation and notes.
Great color and exposed well, and I like the long exposures effect on the water running through..I might've been tempted to spot heal the small bright spot, top-left center.

  • Great

Hi, dear Pedro.
Be careful, keep out. : ))

Excellent POV and subject for capturing. The height, richness of colours, deepness of darks and excellent reproduction of texture of the rock surface make great emotional impression. Powerful art work. BRAVO and best wishes.
Yours Alexei.

Another GREAT capture.Highly IMPRESSIVE.
Loved your DETAILED notes.
The colours are fascinating.
Love your dedication to this art.
Best regards,
