Re: Seascape

Nice one. I like the way the light plays on the distant mountains, and also the way the ripples run and catch the light.

Is this a panorama from several shots or a crop from a single one?

Re: Seascape

Very nice indeed Dave!

Stephen I think it's a crop from a single image and took from a boat.

Re: Seascape

The light was certainly fantastic when this was taken! I would have loved to have been there.

Re: Seascape

Wonderful shot! I like the way the ripples in the water lead your eye into the frame to the distant mountain.

Re: Seascape

Lovely shot Dave I like the look of the clouds drifting across the top of the mountains you captured the light at it's best. Regards John.
