Très belle image. Les couleurs sont spectaculaires. L'avant plan est particulièrement réussi, le phare très beau et le ciel parfait.
Belle utilisation des filtres.

Hi Stephen. Exceptional image with its vivid colours, marvelous light and a POV that places us smack in the middle of this rugged terrain with the chance of getting our feet wet. Excellent clarity. A pleasure to look at. Regards. Klaudio.

The foreground with its patchwork of rocks and vegatation lit by a low sun makes this an eye catching landscape photo.

As ever, a stunning image with fabulous lighting. Great composition, exposure etc etc..... The reflection of the lighthouse helps make the lighthouse element stronger and pulls the viewer into the picture.

Wow, beautiful light, beautiful clarity and colours too. Great to include the rocks and the green moss in the foreground adding texture and interest there. Cool lighthouse sitting proudly on it's outcrop. and I like it's slight reflection appearing in the water puddles, great sky too. All in all a wonderful shot.

What a beautiful light ! And your composition is great too. I like the lighthouse reflection. The sharpness is excellent.

Very nice composition, well thought.
I like how you used your wide-angle lens : making us go into the scene and getting a very interesting depth.
Moreover, you took advantage of a very beautiful light in the evening which allows to get a very coloured and attractive shot.
A shot I would have liked in my gallery.
Very good work.
Sorry for my poor english.

Great on of this lighthouse. I seem to love this green algae...very attractive! And the way the rays of the sun are hitting it is wonderful. Altogether a fine composition, with a different framing too. Fine work as always, regards,

The quality is so good ! Congratulations :)

I had a break from TE and I am really glad to find you back again with so many wonderful pictures with your unmistakable style.
How about your book on mystic places, is it ready?

I love the large foreground with the green vegetation, rocks and reflections and the overall composition of your shot. The clouds complement the rocks very well, they seem to be of a similar shape.
The light is excellent, as are the colours. TFS.
sacavem (18620) 2010-08-16 6:55
Perhaps the best shot of the day!
Grad Grey, it is a fantastic filter for these occasions.
Great colours and a very pleasant composition.
