Dark rain...

Here along the north east coast of Ireland the landscape is dominated by a high plateau cut by deep glens which sweep eastward to the sea. Above all it is an area of contrasts; gentle bays are separated by blunt headlands, exposed moorlands give way to gentle valleys, wide vistas to enclosed farm lands.

Exposure Time: 1/50 sec
F-Stop: f/13
ISO Speed Ratings: 100

I like such images a lot, Stephen. A lot of postprocessing but the effect is impressive :-) Great pattern of the sky. TFS! Michal

Hello Stephen,
Another great one from your hand! Absolute a very nice pov and a dramatic sky. You have made good use of the foreground. I only wonders how the picture looks like without the tobacco filter.
Good work!
TFS and regards, Ruud

What a stunning coastal scene Stephen. Well composed and the sky looks nice and heavy with rain. The lighting and colours are great too. Well shown, thank you.

Hello Stephen

A magnificent land/sea scape. The rose colour in the sky is a sensational contrast with the angry grey clouds. The saturation in this shout is outstanding. A real pleasure to view. Thank you!

Your the specialist Stephen,

Stephen, one of the great things about photography is that anything can become a beautiful image: I like how the dark shades become a beautiful scene here.

Excellent composition; I like mood too.

Hi Stephen,

Your landscapes are superb. I love the dark clouds and the wall in the fg is just great. Very well composed and excellent light. 9/10.


Hi Stephen,
Another beautiful and dramatic landscape shot! Excellent composition and framing. A somber mood to this shot that shows great depth in it.
Great work here!

Excellent shot of a magnificent landscape. Well composed with the interesting lines curving in opposite directions (stones/clouds).

As always: beautiful and magic.
Straight to my favs, of course ;)

It`s beautiful.It seems like it`s a painting...Really good shot.The sky is the most visiable but I think also the rocks are very important in the composition.
