Hi again,

Here is another shot from the same England trip in May last year.
This shot was taken not far away from the Gad Cliffs (if i remember correctly), at a place that Paul old me was sometimes used by the army for practice ground. He said that they'd test tanks and stuff there and i remember that for a fact because there were big numbers placed on the slopes here and there that were used as targets. I even had to clone out one from this scene :)

You can check out some more photos from my England trip here on my website.

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting ;)

hello Horia!
he loves the Dorset ... and I think that for me too will be the same thing....
fragrance of green and blue

best sERGIO

Hi Horia
Good shot showing the rock strata of the Dorset coast. I like the rich green of the spring grass and the moody, grey clouds.
Kind Regards

Hello Loria,
Very nice seascape. Good composition and a nice light who give an peaceful atmosphere.
Very well done.

It might be England but the green looks like Irish to me:-) It is after all not too far from St Patty's Day and what would a guy named Shannon do without it?!

Wonderful glimpse of colours and sharpness...in a location I would trade in a heartbeat.

Hello Horia,
A nice capture of this charming little Dorsetshire nook.
It makes me think how cool it would be to walk down to that bay.

Hi Horia,
That trip was really prolific!
So good to know the history of the place, very interesting and perfect nowadays for this picture.
I like the composition made with the lines and curves of the rocks formations, and your editing work was so good that is no noticeable.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
Best regards,

  • Great

Hello my fiend,
another gem you've shown the light of day! I recognised this spot in an instant, it's Pondfield Cove! Once again your powers of excellent composition have beaten the dull conditions and created a lovely view, using the Gorse as a great foreground element. I have sheltered in that little cave down there many times :o)
Well done!

Hi Horia,
Un paiseje excelente, muy bien captado, buen documento artistico y geologico. Saludos cordiales.

Maybe not the best illumination for it Horia, but what makes this a fine composition is not only the flowering schrubs in the foreground, but also the "diving" strata over the opposite shore. Nice combination with great depth, my friend.

Hello Horia!
First of all - thanks for the wishes my Friend!!! :)

And what we have this time...? ;> Great capture with natural, vivid colours (I like especially green tones of grass :>). Moreover - you kept here all what I like in landscape photography: mountain, sea, cliffs... :) Bravo!
I am waiting for you next pictures! :)
All the best from really cold Lodz (some -16C).

Hello Horia,
fascinating coastal landscape in exqusite, quite unusual composition. I like its depth, its subtle yet dramatic colours, the atmosphere of some refreshing rain to come.
Must have been a beautiful trip to the UK, most inviting to follow your steps. Thank you!
With all my best wishes to you,

Hello Horia,
This is a beautiful composition showing a dramatic part of the Dorset coast. Fantastic cliffside with caves and a beautiful beach. Excellent DOF, sharp details, lovely colours and a very fine composition with the Gorse in the foreground.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

A wonderful place. I like the colors, light and the composition. TFS
Best wishes, Carme.

Hi Horia.
The key points of the picture are the captured scene, selected POV and framing of the view. Your handling of photo camera and technique favors the representation of beautifulness of this place. Great annals of your trip. My heartfelt wishes and TFS.

Another great landscape shot from my neck of the woods :-)
Very good composition.
Superb sharpness.
Excellent clarity.
Try as I might, I can't see where you cloned out the number, so very good PP too :-)

Well done mate,


Bonsoir Horia
Cette prise est magnifique,les couleurs sont parfaitement exposé et les détails sont bons.

Hello Horia,
very picturesque.Beautiful and serene.
Good colours in a well composed shot.
Thanks for the share,
You have got some exquisite pictures in your website. I just had a glimpse but I promised myself to visit again.:)

Hello Horia,
Well composed wide angle shot.
An honest picture with a subtle simplicity in it.

Hi Horia,
I like the color sat, detail, and comp here..
Very good DOF and exposure under overcast conditions.
Looks nice & green in May, great to see some color because it's so dead here now.
Our fields are mostly a drab dead brown, we need some rain here in CT or Spring will not "spring" very well this year.
Anyway :)
Very well done!

Hi Horia,
I've been absent a little while, so I am glad to have made a group with landscape photographers. This is a very beautiful photo with a perfect composition. I like the bush in the FG a lot. The jagged details contrast beautifully with the rounded edge of the cliff in the back. The texture of that cliff is ofcourse amazing and shows what mother earth can do. The beautiful sky suits the scenery perfectly and gave you a wonderful shadowless view.

Hello Horia !
Wow, I love this picture ! eminds me the day I visited England with my school - we splept on the ferry boat, and in the morning when we went up we had the most wonderful sunrise on the cliffs of England shores. It was an amazing moment, and this pictures brings back the happy memory. I love the curve of the rocks, the dramatic sky, the beautiful green color of the grass. Composition and POV are splendid. Really wondeful. Thanks for sharing this beauty !
