Water is both cold and wet.
Earth is both cold and dry.
Air is both hot and wet.
Fire is both hot and dry.

The salt water of the Atlantic Ocean that has passed Cape Roca and which has now completed half of its couterclockwise journey has made it to "Rock Cove", just below my boathouse. Some of it will "stick around" a bit as it gets immobilized. Salt water doesn't freeze that easily, but when it is strayed on stonecold rocks it has no choice! And it was cöld töday, eh!

Cold you say....it was +5 here today...but cold weather is coming :)
Hi Jay
I like your dramatic seascape and wave crashing against the rocks. Good timing! Your colours and lighting are good. Nicely balanced and composed. I also wish you warm weather real soon.

Hi Jay,

This is a very good capture of the action of water.
I liked the way the water is splashing against the rocks.
Very sharp, beautiful colours and light.
Good shot!

Greetings, Nel

Hi Jay,
Very dramatic seascape, waves crashing, ice forming on rocks and you shivering trying to get the picture. Fantastic lighting, color and composition.

Hello Jay , A Beautifull shot from the stones (rocks ) great compositie colours and sharpnes ,good job ,tfs Greetings Teunie .ps Jasc Paint shop pro .

Hello Jay,
coming to see the coastline of Nova Scotia in January is a rare event for those not living there. I guess there will not be too many tourists around at this time of the year. I like the crisp details and the contrast of warm and cold hues. The element water well characterized according to Greek philosophers like Empedokles - thanks for the link to Wikipedia! Looking forward to the your translation of the other elements, including the fifth one.
As stated above, the image is very clear and full of dynamic tension, and very intense. It makes me feel being there. A little nit is some overexposure of sky and foam of waves - would like to contribute a little "wörkshop" on that - but I can't. You seem to have disabled that function.
Hope you are sitting in front of a nice warm feuer right now - take kare not to katch a kold out there.
With thanks and best regards,

Hi Jay

This is a very nice photo with some very interesting and a premiere...i think :)
That something very interesting is the note and the description of the classicla elements.
I went to the link from the wikipedia and found that that drawing from where you took the first paragraph of your note...i must say it's very interestng and it makes a lot of sense :)

The premiere here is the triple dedication...i haven't whitnessed one before :p

The photo is excellent and the moment you managed to capture is great! Thet great splash looks terrific and the frozen water on the roks is magnificent!

Splendid work!
Bravo and TFS

Hi Jay,

Nice, nice, nice. Showing the movement and I like the DOF and composition. Good light, sharpness and contrast. Wel gedaan.


Hi Jay
thank you for your beautiful seascape , a frozen ocean that is impossible to see here in portuguese shore!...but really it´s the very same ocean that some people thinks to set apart peoples and land...not true , this ocean is a strong bound and we are,really,neighbours in the planet earth!
your photo and words touched my feelings very deep and I thank you for that,dear neighbour!
best regards

Hi Jay,

It lööks very cold but the colours is wärm and
I like the compostion too.
I see you use the ö letter, maybe it's time for å and ä. ;-))
Well done.

I love this, both the capture and the humörous nötes. Great cölours and details: amazing to see that it was taken in January (I thought of the ocean shöre as frözen by then)! I would imagine those ice-cövered rocks are pretty dangerous though!
