    There is something almost mystical about this…
    Ether that, or it’s just an amazing shot!!!

  • Cheers David – glad you like it … I had initially thought I’d use this to experiment on PS (I was recently shown how to add skies onto a pic). But I have many shots of featureless skies … and this one looked a bit special to me without any fiddling.

    Once again, another great shot!

  • Thank you! I loved the textures of these red rocks … made for great foregrounds (as you’ve seen … I liked them a LOT)

    You have SUCH a knack for titles (did I tell you that before?) so creative and excellently done

  • LOL!! .. it’s basically a description of the scene isn’t it? I can’t do the conceptual titles (or shots) … what I see is what you get.
    Thanks Micklyn!

    I wish I was better at descriptive words, this is beautiful, but beautiful has become such a common word. Hmmm… maybe you just have too many beautiful pics! :-) So… mystical, enchanting, captivating, bewitching, astounding, awe-inspiring, impressive, tremendous!!! That should do it! :-) Just apply all of these wonderful words to all of your latest ocean shots!!! (a thesauras is a wonderful thing) :-D

  • You are just too sweet to me!!
    Thank you so much my dear friend … so glad you like the latest crop – I tend to go a little nuts when I’m by the ocean!
