Continuing my "remember the England trip...looking forward for next year's" saga, here is another shot form the Dorset coast, particularly the one from Bournemouth.

This is where my great fiend and host lives and here is my message for him: "Get to work! I want to see those new toys in action! ;)" (he knows what i'm talking about)

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting.

Hallo Horia
An absolute delight to look at this piece of paradise you have shared with us today. The blend of colours and textures of all the elements of nature in this one image is just magic and a sheer feast to the eye. Looking at the sea and the sand brings back wonderful memories of my childhood. Thanks for sharing. I wish I could witness this unspoiled beach once again for real. It is beautiful. Best regards

Hello Horio,

The perfect composition and the low shutter speed makes this a superb picture. Very well done.


Hello Horia! Original vertical composition. Perfect exposure, capture and frame. Nice light and colours. Well done!

Hello Horia,
What a wonderful photo. The colours and composition are really perfect. The clarity is amazing. The DOF is fantastic with the dark clouds in top. Excellent choice of POV.

Fine landscape with waves and good sky for the background, wish there is some more contrast in the foreground, the beach. tfs.

Well well well, what have we here?! I can almost see this spot from my house! As i remember, this was your last shot from our weekend of shooting before you rushed to catch the train!
Amazing depth and well timed capture of the moving water...a wonderful and faithful capture of a place i know very well...and by the way, i have been working with my new toys very hard ;o)
Great work mate, well done and thanks for sharing it.

Hi Horia,
How can you keep these gems away from us for such a long time? The movement in the waves, the composition and the moody sky are just wonderful. I like it how there is some room between the wave and the larger rocks because they really channel the eye into the composition.
