Hi Stephen,
A mystical image!
I like very much the looong exposure and the resulting effect.
The fog around the rocks works great.
You've made an excellent composition with all that silhouettes.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

wonderfull photo, nice color

Ooh, magic light! Something about you photos that makes me feel they are taken right out of a dream. The blueish light, the composition and the exposure works very well. You`ve done it again Stephen!


Hi Steve,
The exposure is perfectly managed for an optimized image. The "Blue Hour"? Is that actually a term in landscape photography then??
Anyway, it's a wonderful image with an excellent effect and great impact.
Very well done & have a great weekend!
