Hi Tony .After one wet and dull day in southern England this is just what i needed to see. The waves and mist from the surf looks fantastic. a very nice compostion with natural looking colours. with just a hint of the clouds. well done TFS. you have brightened up my day. TFS.

Hello Tony

This is just an awesome scene..Your framing as ever is just spot on...Everything is just perfect Tony from the sea to the sky to the cliffs!!
I wish you a very good day.

Hi Tony!

Nicholas and Paul seem not to be as lucky as Tony and me: we here had great weather, too, today. In the morning it was cloudy and fresh, but soon turned to pleasant spring weather. Unfortunatly I couldn't go out and try to do something as beautiful as Tony did because I had a family celebration... So I'm glad to look at Ton'y marvellous seascape...

Kind regards


Hi Ho,
Yes, good weather apparently?
I wonder if this is the Tasman sea side of the eastern part, the Pacific ocean side.
Wonderful 3D effect and beautiful colors.
Well done

Hi Tony

Great composition - well balanced and with great colours. The spray is wonderful.


Hi my dear friend Tony,
A lovely and beautifull coastal scenery!
Great composition!

Hi Tony,

Believe it or not we have no blue skies today - just clouds and wind. So your seascape looks even more wonderful to me. The water looks great. The composition is superb with the rocks framing the picture.


Hi Tony,
This is well seen and composed. Color of the sky is amazing and so are exposure and details! You chose good shutter speed that gives the image kind of movement. Thanks,

Hi Tony, you can smell the sea air in this one, the colours are fantastic. The surf on the beech is really good with the spray kicking up. Excellent work. TFS regards h

Hi Tony!

The coast is wonderful as always, the sky is clear and the place looks like heaven! Only composition with the fg rock is strange for me this time, maybe just something else in concept than what we are used to from you: but it looks good there and the details in that are very fine as well. And I love those long waves... TFS!

Best regards,

Amazing how you can turn a simple scene into paradise....do you also see it as a paradise?...or do things change in your sight from time to time, when all is almost helpless....or do you run back to your images of summer and fall when things were much different? It is a trick of photos and philosophy which you must have inherited via genes..

Hi Tony,

Pretty seacape with beautiful colors and great sharpness.
What are that orange on the foregrond on the beach?
Beautiful clear sky.

Regards Gert

Hello Tony,
There is a wonderful feeling of depth in this image!
The atmosphere is well conveyed as I can almost smell the salty water as the surf rolls in from the South Pacific...
Great colours and sharp fine details!

Hello Tony,

The waves and (again) mist from the surf looks fantastic. I believe there is no day without mist. Is that correct? I like the look through to the sea. It is fantastic. Gives this picture a very unusual composition. And oh, oh what is the sky beautiful. From light to dark blue. This must be a perfect summerday. The photo is ful of clarity. razorsharp. Take for instance a look at the front rock. The mussels are very well recognized. Great compo. Greetings and TFS BOB

Amazing lighting. Fabulous how you captured the spray of the surf...or mist. Great details!!

What a lovely capture, Tony!
A real brightener to the dull, wet and windy day we're having :-)
Lovely saturated colours and excellent contrast.
Great composition.
Brilliant clarity.
Nice work!
Well done,


very nice scene, but the lighting is quite harsh, and judging by your notes, you took this during high noon, whoops. I would have taken this in the morning or evening

Hello Tony,

I like your pov, using the rocks on either side as borders. The eyes are nicely steered towards the beach and ultimately towards that inviting, blue sea! Lovely composition and truly enviable colours!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
Many thanks for your kind comments on 'Long John Silver'.

Hallo Tony
I really like this coastal scene. It is colourful and relaxing to look at. A nice and calm scenario with lots of wide and open space you have posted here. It reminds me off a place where you want to escape to when the daily rat-race gets too much. A peaceful mix of beautiful sea and bright blue sky. The water looks so inviting, and although I don't really like to swim, I'll reconsider to splash into that cool and refreshing looking water. Great landscape as usual. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi good friend Tony,
Wonderful shot of this cool place and the view looks fabulous. Lovely colours and details and the rolling surf presents looks majestic. The blue of the sky is so rich. Excellent DOF and a well chosen POV to portray this charming scenery. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Tony,
A beautiful seascape. Excellent capture. Lovely composition and beautiful colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Tony,
well framed and exposed shot, looks like a lovely day down on your coast my friend!
thanks for sharing,

Hi Tony

Love the picture. great detail and brightens up the day. I find it interesting to see 'normal' views rather than stunning landscapes sometime (something I am not very good at doing and must try to take a lesson from your book I think). You have handled the harsh sunlight well without loosing any details. this patch reminds me of some of the bays around the Cape Wrath area of Scotland (somewhere I have been several times, but not posted many pictures from). The only minor crit that I am very particular about is the horizon... It appears to have a very big tilt to the right on it, but it may be the waves... still it does not detract too much because there is so little of it to see ;-)

Excellent composition!

Lo siento (sorry) ya que últimamente entro poco en la web por motivos de trabajo y es por ello que solo emito a veces votos cuando me votan:-)
Veo otra de tus vivas creaciones donde aparte de la luz destaca lo bien captada que está la atmósfera marina.

Hi Tony,
Very nice land-seascape capture of this beautifull place. TFS.

Bellissimo paesaggio marino, eccellenti POV, DOF e composizione, molto buona la nitidezza, bellissimi i colori della spiaggia e del mare, forse troppo saturo il cielo a sinistra: Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hello Tony,
What a sunny day! How I wish our climate was also as good as yours.:( Imagine my situation where I got my new camera but is waiting for the sun to shine.Most of the mornings are overcast and evenings we get thunder showers.(It is unusual at this time of the year, though.)So seeing your lovely landscapes with the sun shining brightly in the sky brings cheer to our dull days:)As usual excellent image with a lovely POV, colors and composition.
Thanks for the share,
