Hi Tony

A lovely composition - I love the curve of the cliff. You have captured the harsh lavas perfectly.

Hi Tony,

You have the same blue skies in winter as we do! I love the rocks and waves. Perfect timing to get the waves hitting the shore with the big splashes. Colors are magnificent, superb details of the rocks and a glorious composition.


Hello Toni
I think I would take dancing waves over snow any day....

A nice capture Toni, the waves seem to be full of fun as they spray up against the rocks. The blue sky is amazing and reflects onto the water so nicely. You've captured the ruggedness of the rocks so well. A great scene.

Hi Tony,
A great display of wawe action. The view is just beautiful and the wawes are extra. Nice colours and composition, good DOF.

Good point of view, Ho.
Nice blue sky and I like these dancing waves.
Composition is just fine through this Keyhole rock and the foreground rock to the left.
Well done

...and many cheers back to you...if I remember I shall dedicate tomorrows image to you...come back and remind me:-) I love your water works...I always have a love for the seaside and the mountains...not much left but the Palouse I now live in!

I like the action in the water and the clarity of the colors Tony. The foreground textures revealed by the low tide adds a lot of interest to the shot.

Hola Tony, otro pequeño paraiso, buena exposición y atractivas tonalidades de azul. Un saludo

Hi Tony,
A beautiful capture of this lovely beach view. Very well composed with lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Tony,

Hi Tony,
yet again a stunningly beautiful scene.
I love the saturated colours.
Excellent timing.
Great sharpness.

Very well done!


Hi Tony, dear friend
You are right that waves look like dancing. When our summer finish here, you will live in spring in New Zealand. You captured and presented winter effect in there with a great seascape. Great POV and composition. Timing and colors superb. Thanks for sharing. have a nice weekend my friend

Hello Tony,
A striking image of rocks, sea and blue sky!
The use of the limited winter light was just right with the exposure time giving movement to the waves without too much blur. The composition is superb and the angle lighting gives fine shadow contrasts to bring out the structure of the rocks.
A wonderful land/seascape Tony and thanks for sharing it.

Hi Tony,

Fantastic photo of this landscape.
Beautiful colours with excellent sharpness and composition.

Hi Tony,

Again a lovely composition. The blue sea and sky in contrast with the darker Cliffs make this photo a beauty. As always very sharp.

Cheers and TFS BOB

Hi dear friend,
It's a very inviting seascape. Textures of the rocks, colors and composition are very good. TFS
All the best,

Hello Tony. Another hit post against the spotless blue sky. The splashing wave was captured well in good shutter speed. Nice framing with the two rocks balances well in the frame. TFS and best regards. Jusni

Belle ambiance bien cadrée.
Bonne journée.
