Hi Tony!

Beautiful scenery my friend, showing NZ coastlines at their best! Happy celebrations to you too but I hope we'll see you again before Christmas on TN! TFS!


The depth of field you managed is super despite the f2.8. This is a very sharp, well exposed image. your image really shows what that stretch of rugged coast is like. It is an effective composition with interesting shapes, lines and textures.

Happy Holiday Season to you too.

Hello Tony

Happu Christmas to you too. A lovely, well composed shot with excellent dof and colour.


Hallo Tony
Thanks for your special wishes that accompanies this image. This is such a undisturbed and peaceful landscape. A magic scene that has a calming effect on the eye. The scenery is really wonderful and makes one appreciate nature so much more looking at it from here where I am. I have seen many New Zealand sceneries lately and this is definitely one of them. A beautiful coastline captured.
Best regards from a very humid Empangeni in South Africa.

Hi Tony,

Everything has been said on your post, thanks for the fresh landscape shot, happy weekend anf festival season.


Hola Tony,
Your usual greenish landscape with a wavy sea right beside looks wild and splendid below those fluffy clouds my friend, a perfect nature scene indeed! Wish you the best of the holiday season and a happy, productive new year...

Another breathtaking view! Absolutely beautiful!
Again, the perfect composition and depth.

Kia Ora my friend,

How it's live overthere? I hope very well. The summer is almost in your country Tony. Let's go and do what you can. A beautiful composition of the seascape by the Bethels. I'ts look like the scenery by Muriwai beach. Beautiful. I love it. This is Tony on his best.

Happy Christmas to you too and all the best for your and family in 2009

Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day and TFS BOB

pov. and gorgeous colors,
hug a dear friend.
greetings to your family

Hola Tony, al igual que yo veo que has estado un tiempo publicando poco. Gracias como siempre por tu comentario.
La fotografía en tu línea de trabajo. Captas bien el ambiente y refleja su serenidad perfectamente.

Hi Tony,
Just a coastal scenery??? I think you are getting an overkill of your own coastline. To me this is another stunning coastal scenery which we do not have in our flat country. The lush green hugging the cliffs and touching the sea are wonderful. I love the puffy cloud formation and the clarity of the view.

Hi Tony, thanks for your season greetings and Merry Christmas and happy new year to you too, summer in Christmas time, thats wonderful, we have cold and rain, fascinating sea view with fantastic sky, splendid colors, very well done, greetings from cold Italy, ciao Silvio

Hello Tony,
Lovely composition of the land meeting the sea at Bethells taken in great lighting to show the richness of the vegetation with fine colours. Makes me look forward to the summer!
TFS and best wishes for Christmas and the New Year to you too!

Hello Tony,

Thank you so much for your good wishes.
May I wish the same to you!

The lush greens and the soft blues tell of lazy summer days! I like the way you have overlapped the distant headland with the f/g. It gives a good impression of depth and, of course, the colours help clarify this.
I think you were absolutely right to give so much sky. It is interesting and feels to form a protective canopy over the scene.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
