Hi Ho!

Are we on earth? Very surprising and amazing view and texture, underlined by these nicely colored plants. The composition is fine, maybe you gave the mouldy sky a bit too much place. But the overall impression and atmosphere, also the perspective are great.

Kind regards

Hi Tony,
Amazing view of this place!
It's so good to see it during the low tide and beeing able to appreciate how it looks like.
I'm impressed by the geological form of the rock and the beauty contrast made by the green of the foliage.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Tony, splendid shot with lovely green colors on the rock, very nice composition with an outstanding point of view,
well done,

Hi Tony,

Wonderful to see this cliff at low tide. The details of the rock are marvelous. Excellent natural colors with the green trees adding contrast.


The rock cliffs are unlike any I have ever seen either in person and I have traveled a lot..or in picture. I'm still not sure if it is the way you do this type of picture..or some secret photo technique but whatever it is...it works! A very good Shot!

Hello Tony

I like the patterns and textures of this shot.The colours are deep and rich.Nicely composed in the frame.The POV is excellent.The greenery growing on the cliff really enhances the shot.I think you go to the beach as much as I go into the woods.LOL.TFS


Hello Tony,
This is an interesting document telling the story of how the land developed throught millions of years!
Interesting to see the way ocean has worked on the cliffs as the land rise from the sea...
A well composed presentation with fine details!
Pablo -

Hi friend Tony,
Wonderful shot during low tide illustrating fine patterns in the sand. The cliff look awesome and the patches of green vegetation presents nice colours to the shot. The sky is a bit OE I suppose but picture looks majestic and you have captured the ambience very well. Excellent low POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

A wonderful composition - well positioned main subject, wonderful distribution in the photo.
Great colors - how green that green is!! Beautiful.
The pattern in the foreground is great...another beauty.

Quel paysage magnifque a nous donner envi d'aller chez-vous.

Hello Tony,
You have great places and you reflect these perfectly.

Hello Tony,

Your POV demonstrates very well the angry effects of the sea! You have captured so much interesting detail here that I have gazed at the shot for many minutes before making a comment! Just wonderful!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Tony
What a unique rock form, both above and at ground level. The colour and textures are great and help to create lots of interest! The sky is a bit washed out but who am I to talk :D

Hi Tony,
Interesting to see at low tide.I like both the pattern of the rocks and that of the erosion of the cliff.Nicely composed though less sky may have been better because of the over exposure.Good detail and I like the green.....take care.

Hello Tony,
I like the composition of this shot showing the cliffs of the gannet rock and their strata. The whole shot is so sharp that one can ID the gulls on the eroded rocky beach. The Silver, or Red-billed Gulls show clearly, as does the juvenile Pacific Gull on the left. The striking greenery on the rock adds a good contrast.
Well done and TFS!

Hola Ho,
gran encuadre y maravilloso paisaje muy bien captado. Justa luz. Sensación de profundidad. Sacas un buen rendimiento a esa Canon S5 IS !!!
