Dear Tony,
a very pleasant feeling of tranquillity and coming to rest on this apparently cool day. An excellently well balanced composition, a pleasure to see and to feel the breeze. Thank you! With best regards,

Hola amigo.
Una preciosa vista, con un agradable contraste entre el cielo y la tierra.
Magnífica dedicatoria.

Hi Tony

Lovely composition - excellent depth of field and great division of the frame. Quite different to when I was there in January.


Hi Ho,

Excellent capture of this beautiful view. Good composition, POV and DOF. Details are sharp and colours bright and natural.



Un altro dei tuoi bellissimi paesaggi marini, ottimo POV, molto bella la composizione con gli spazi suddivisi in modo perfetto, eccellente nitidezza e splendidi i colori. Grazie e com plimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Wonderful Tony. You could not have picked a better man. Nick is just super at what he does, as you are. Perhaps you do not post as much, but you wait until you get a great image...and many folks wait patiently for you picture....Very nicely done as are many if not most of your scape shots.
Most Sincerely

  • Great

Hi Tony,

How nice to dedicate this lovely seascape to Nick on his milestone. Another beautiful scene with such a tranquil atmosphere. I could sit there for an entire day just watching those wonderful waves. I love those green hills and the blue water and sky.


Hi My Dear Friend TONY,

Beautifull composition of the beach..
A lovely dedication for Nicholas Glen .. My wishes to Nick too.


Hi Tony,
Aren't you afraid that will run out of photos of all these magic spots? Or does New Zealand supply you with that many that we will be able to enjoy loads more?
Anyway, its another stunner! I like the waves roling into the photo and the cliffs in the back. Great clarity and details.

Hello Tony,

Thanks for dedicated this beautiful land/seascape photo to Nicholas. An excellent and well balanced compo of this shot.
Such a beautiful natural colors. A beautiful rolling waves in the bay, a blue sky and green hills at the coast. What do you want more my friend!!. A great shot Tony. Thanks and TFS BOB

I'm off here tomorrow, Tony.
I like your POV looking backwards to the gannet colony hill, and especially with the tide in.
I would have cropped off some of the sky (above the interesting cloud formation on the right) so the horizon is not so centred.
It looks a beautiful autumn day too.

Hello Tony, dear friend
As I wrote in your previous post, autumn' beauty occurs in New Zealand nowadays, we go to most warm days of the year here. This is really beautiful scene and its is a great landscape shot in your usual quality.
It is also great dedication for our good friend Nicholas.
thanks so much for sharing this beauty. best regards my friend

Hi Tony,
Splendid shot of this beach front and the rolling surf in layers make up a fine image. Very impressive sharpness and colours with beautiful lighting. The green cliffs and the clear blue sky brings in a fresh ambience which is so cool and pleasant. Very majestic setting. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hi Tony, lovely and peaceful landscape, great light and splendid colors, wonderful composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

The illumination is excellent with lovely,natural colours.
Well composed with a very well thought out POV.
