The timing was perfect to capture the stillness of the rather swift ocean and the beautiful contrast of the sky. Brilliant!
Nice how the bubbles near the bottom edge are not blurred, while the rest of the water is.
And nice how there's a strip of sand at the right edge, that leads the viewer behind or around the rock.
Nice also how the cloud lines seem to radiate out of the middle rock.
Wonderful quality of light throughout the whole image.
Great feeling of depth.
There's so much to like about this picture. Well done!
it seems to be time trap......or some painting on the canvas.......but reality remains.....hard to believe that its a master photography
Sometimes life comes at you like this. In a rush! Sometimes it's in the form of problems, sometimes love, sometimes heartaches, sometimes joy. But be patient, because usually the tide goes back out.
Oh my goodness - Our Earth never ceases to amaze me! There are SO many places I would like to see, from a geological, historical, and archaeological point of view. I have been privileged to live along Lake Michigan, scouring ice age moraines for fossils, and in Northern California to discover the wonders of Yosemite, Big Sur, upper North Coast, pictographs around Donner Lake ... A thousand fascinating places!
And still so many yet to explore! Had I but the youth and funds to do so, I would be audacious and adventurous in my pursuit!!! Ah well . . I can still dream, long, and fantasize.
I'm not much of a rock person but these dark ones against a really gorgeous sky, with a soft foamy wave breaking on shore, are definately worth looking at. A good shot altogether. Thanks,Michael. j.e.s.
Very beautiful. I like how the light rays seem to emanated from one of the stones.
Please make this into a wallpaper.
Very prehistoric and so beautiful! What a peaceful photograph that speaks so many things. Gorgeous colors, textures and it's just so perfect in every way.
Beautiful shot. Beautiful light. Lovely composition. Now I know why I am only an amateur !
Nice how the striations in the clouds are echoed by the striations in the receding surf. They draw your eye into the far distance in the photo.
I can't help seeing faces in rocks. To me, the large rock in the foreground on the right looks like the cartoonish profile of the head of a 'grand dame', with chin held imperiously high.
