    There are 4 levels in this image and I reckon everyone of them is a total cracker. All up it is heaps more than very pleasant. Love it! Thank you.

  • Cheers Jeff, it was such a beautiful morning, I’m so glad to have been able to capture this!

    Just amazing Mel… painterly….and love the mist above those waves. The colours are sublime and the lighting through the waves and on the rocks is more than special…!

  • Thanks Trace, the light was sublime!

    Fabulous result Mel, I love the light on the rocks and on the wave, and the juxtaposition of the cityscape and the natural environment :)

  • Cheers Matt! I rarely use the telephoto at the beach, but glad I took it along for this shoot!
