Hi Tony!

Winter offers beautiful light conditions, and you took great benefit of this fact. The picture shows a quite and peaceful seascape, a place where it must be nice to live. Thank you for this delightful moment of fresh air...

Kind regards

Hi Tony.
Lovely photo, with such a great colors and excellent detail on the birds. Why there is no trees in the top of the last mountain?

Bellissimo paesaggio marino, ottima composizione con il volo degli uccelli in primo piano e la prospettiva di queste coste alte, ottima nitidezza, molto belli i colori e la luce di queste prime giornate invernali. Grazie e complimenmti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Tony,

Now this is a winter scene I can relate to - a drop in the temperature but still a blue blue sky. It must have been windy - the water looks choppy. Beautiful scene with wonderful colors and I love the birds in the water.


hello Tony

beautiful landscape and seascape image with fine POV and DOF,
i love the waves of the foreground going to thr land,
i love your POV at that level, i love the fly of the coast birds
because (for me) this image without the fly of the birds
it woont be the same, it wont be as beautiful, TFS


Good health on your upcoming season Tony! Very well seen and I can feel the emotive feeling you shout here in the coming changes...it is an almost last lark...Very nicely done and notes well seen...and also understood! Succinct!

A great composition - lovely lighting and colours. I especially like the flock of stilts which add a lot to the shot.

Hi Tony,
What a lovely scene you captured, it hardly feels like winter, the cliff face really throws a warm light. An interesting cut in the hill in the distance. Many thanks for your comment on the swallow.

Cheers Richard

Hello Ho, Yes regards to you all for producing this good shot. Excellent landscape and lovely scenery. I wish to be there on the side taking a dip in and enjoying the lovely weather. Ganesh

Buena profundidad por ese acertado contraste entre los dos salientes. Colores naturales. Interesantes las aves en el centro de la imagen. Todas tus fotografías son bellas :-))

Hello Tony,

Nice composition. Birds, sea, land and windy conditions. Thats the beginning of your wintertime Tony. But a blue sky. That means no rain my friend. Be happy with that.

Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend and TFS BOB

Hello Tony,
Great light, your winter sunlight, shows up the cliffs and the trees in a fine way in a pleasing composition. A little extra spice is the flock of Black-winged Stilts in the centre.
Thanks for sharing this fine, for me not so wintery, scene.
Best wishes,

Hi Tony,
Wonderful winter image. :) Don't get me wrong, I know there's winter on the Southern hemisphere now, but I imagine that season for example this or this way. :) Your photo's a very nice one, not really something I think about winter from, but usually one of Your high quality seacoast images. Great timing, focus, colors and perspective.
Congrats, tfs, regards, László

Hi Tony,
I like the light, scenery, composition and the colors. The birds are a big bonus :o)
Have a great weekend

Hi Tony
wonderful landscape capture of this beautiful sea side. TFS. Regards.

This is a lovely shot, and i love the way you've captured the birds...it gives life to any landscape!

Hello Tony,

Beautiful capture of this coastline. Excellent DOF and clarity. Great light and colours. Not easy to identify winter in your picture with all this evergreen vegetation, only one or two trees without leaves :-)

Precioso paisaje Tony.
Buenos detalles y excelente nitidez.
Interesante nota amigo.
Un cordial saludo, JL.

Once again a wonderfully composed, brilliantly colored seascape. I've been missing a lot of the work on TrekNature lately. Just got busy and lazy. haha

Hi good friend Tony,
Wonderful shot and you have portrayed this Bay bathed in winter morning sunshine so beautifully. Very pleasing and refreshing place this must be and you have done great justice here. The layered waves and the flying sea-gulls add so much motion to the image. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

HOla Ho Tony:
Como sueles hacer, expones una soberbia fotografia, que para mí tiene el interés de ver que algunos paisajes son universales. Buena fotografía con excelentes colores.

Hi, dear friend.
I must say winter in your edges is so beautiful and colourful. This fact and your skill help you to get amazing shot during whole year. Simply great exposure. Lights, shadows, middle tones are reflected perfectly. Colours are amazing (as always for your pictures) as well as the sharpness and details of all beautiful part o the landscape. Bravo.

You also captured a flock of Oyster Catchers too Tony.
The lighting in winter always has a different look about it. Nicely captured

Hi Tony,

Nice sharpness, Nice POV, and nice framing too. Meanwhile what are those birds in the frame called?

Thank you for sharing it!
