La Caleta, a quiet place for meditation during the winter months.
We often have blue skyes here wich make quite uninteresting backgounds,
so I had to try and make the most of these nice clouds.
Because I still don't have any filters, I had to take it at high shutter speed
not to burn the clouds. (the sun was just a bit more on the left)

Wide angle lens, shutter speed : 1/2000 sec

Hope you like this one and have a good weekend.
Thanks for comments

Hello Karin,
This is a super photograph. TFS.
Best wishes,

Good work, Karin...
Compo is great. I'm not sure if the high shutter speed would have avoid or better have impact on the white clouds. They are good anyway, I believe...
It has another consequence though; the registration of the background wave is just beautiful.
Good you got rid of the sun; I mean it isn't in the image and it doesn't belong there either.
Well done overall...

hello karin,

nice shot, still i like the fore ground detail and reflection of the sky,nice colour too,


Hi Karin,
Stunning seascape!
You did it great with the exposure settings to have the light under control and bring us this great scene.
I found very interesting the composition made with the rocks at down, and with those amazing clouds formations.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Karin

I like the vertical framing here and the wonderful light. The reflection in the pool is beautiful. Wonderful scene



This image is magnificent.
Fantastic sky - were you just lucky that day or is this typical?
Almost perfectly still water creates a great reflection.
Nice bold foreground interest.
Mid-ground textures lead us in further.
Crashing waves are a great finishing touch.
