amazing shot mate!!!!!,cheers fazza
Gorgeous and sheer magic Paul! Just beautifully seen and handled. Masterful.
Thank so much Mark – I love hanging out at these locations at night – still haven’t been abducted by mermaids yet though :-)
Did you really know that wave would be the inverse motion of the cloud? Can you know like that in advance, Pablo? Or that those little white holes in the sky would repeat themselves a little larger in the sand (as shadows/rocks/footprints?) (Do tripods leave trails too?) Vivid piece
Pure luck of the lunatic Sharon ;-)Tripods do leave podprints when I use them as a walking stick, but I’ve given up that practice after wearing out too many of them
one of the best moonlight shots i have seen
Great compliment – thank you
Love it! (Nov 25, 2011)
Wow – thanks for the feature
Amazing shot and a great foreground to support the starry sky.Cheers
Thanks Steen – you would love the stars of the Southern Sky – have you seen them?
Stunning photo…I must get down there one day and see this again. I like the angle you took this image on its beautiful :)
Thank you :-)
magic shot pablo,!!!fazza
Thanks fazza – thought this one was archived, but suddenly people are viewing it again and commenting- :-)
Stunning. Love the southern cross upside down to how I see it :) Instant FAVE!!!!
Thanks Karen – I guess because it rotates people see it at different perspectives, so you can get used to it either way.
