Beautifully composed, and the overall bronze colour is stunning. I like the contrast of smooth sky and rippled water. The reflection of the sun is perfect and is very well positioned within the scene, as are the rock silhouettes. Well done Stephen, it's a lovely serene seascape and thanks for sharing it. Regards, Vicky

Hi Stephen
