    Beautiful, Mark…

    I can almost hear the sea nymphs calling us to come into the deep… :)

    I could so steal your images for short stories I’ve worked on and been working on. ;D This so stirs the depths of the writer in me.

    Mesmerising capture.

  • Now stealing wouldn’t be very nice, happy to assist if required.

    Thanks for the comemnt D :)

    You should be happy with this Mark! Black as up my way this morning! You have captured the text book “gods rays” beautifully highlighted by the bland in a good way surroundings (did well to preserve the highlights). Very nice!

  • Thanks mate
