Hello all.

This was taken at kimmeridge bay in dorset. In the distance you can see clavell tower which was built in 1830 as an observatory and folly.

I cheated a little and increased the size of the moon and its reflection to about twice the size as the wide angle lens left it looking like just a little speck in the sky.

thanks for looking

Hi Ewan,
This shot is marvelous.
I love the colours and the beautiful place.
Great composition and scenery.

A fine wide angle capture with an exceptional DOF Ewan, was astonished a bit by the size of the moon until I read your note! Good job indeed my friend!

Hi Ewan !

Nice catch.
I love the colors clear and well defined.
A seascape very interesting and beautiful.
Good day,

This is a very cool inspiring shot! It will be one of my favourites,
Did you use a flash here to get that foreground lighting?
Everything is so sharp and the colours compliment eachother so nicely.

Hello Ewan,
The variation of scenery along the Dorset coast never ceases to amaze me. This is a great twilight shot taken from a fine POV with excellent perspective and set in a nice composition with the full moon as a focal point.
Thanks and kind regards,
