This is another shot of Rossnowlagh Beach in Donegal. I was here with my sister-in-law ostensibly for a walk along the beach, but in reality there for an Irish Coffee in the Sandhouse which is a lovely hotel/pub right on the beach. The title of this photo is a nod to the movie Fitzcarraldo and also to a song of the same name by the Irish band The Frames.

Lumière et couleurs superbes. Les rides de sable forment un joli premier plan mais il manque peut-être une "accroche" un peu plus présente, genre bateau ou belle naïade?

Una grande foto, un enorme film ..ed una musica, Klaus Kinski e Claudia Cardinale e la "follia" di Werner Herzog.
Un bel biglietto da visita per la foto ...che per se stessa ha un fascino, il mare a strisce, che sposa un cielo le cui nubi si vanno slabbrando .
I colori perfetti .

Ciao cara Lisa,
It is amazing that you have family everywhere, Italy, Australia, Ireland. You do not need itchy feet, just visit family. Amaying sunset (or sunrise). simple composition, only sea and sky, but what colours and sharpness.
I would prefer just walking than Irish Coffee. I do not remember why I once tried it. It was stupid of me as I do not drink alkohol nor coffee. and I felt like dead after it. have a nice evening

A beautiful atmospheric composition with superb lighting. Lovely to see the light floating across the dancing waters. Perfectly exposed with excellent sharpness. Enjoy the week ahead.

what a great place to just sit and drink coffee. So tranquil and peaceful. Love the light and the ripples are so distinctive and undulate you towards the beautiful sunset. A captivating image and an accomplished execution.
Have a great Sunday - regards Brian.

The pattern of the clouds and the intensity of the sunrise make for a dramatic scenic coastal shot over the textured beach at low tide. An invigorating way to enjoy the great moment really. Its very artistically created a superb rendition of this image in fine details, lovely light, perspective and the composition is just right. The striking foreground adds to this cheery image. A glorious beachscape, well taken. Great work, Congrats

This IS a seascape!!!
I must go to Ireland to get those "folds" in the water!
What a sunset! both the sea and the sky are gorgeous and create a unique fantastic atmosphere. love the composition, so simple and so essential!
Well , you know, this is a thing which only sea lovers like ourselves can appreciate!
Brava Lisa, this is just pure beauty.
Do you know the origin of this name "Fitzcarraldo"? I heard about the film but never saw it. Is it a family name, Irish maybe?
Ciao e stammi bene,

un mare che sembra di sabbia per la forma delle sue onde.
Spettacolare il momento della giornata, dove l'atmosfera catturata si mostra parecchio romantica.
Ottima la nitidezza. Brava! Ben fatto! TFS!

Ciao Lisa, affascinante e potrebbe bastare così, magica atmosfera, splendida luce del tramonto, cielo d'autore e deliziose le pieghe della sabbia in primo piano, bravissima, ciao Silvio

So simple and so beautiful. Great lines of the sea.
Great catch, have a nice week.
mauro61 (52623) 2011-07-24 11:42
bella immagine con una sequenza di linee e di movimenti sull'acqua che mi piacciono molto.
Ottima la tonalità del cielo di fondo.

Beautiful seascape, with gorgeous tones.
I like how you balanced the foreground.

Ciao Lisa, hai linkato un pezzo musicale straordinario che accompagna questa immagine di straordinaria bellezza e pace atmosfera ideale per un Irish coffe che ora mi ci vorrebbe proprio. Qui piove, è freddo e mi è venuta anche la febbre. In luglio possibile?
Ciao, un abbraccione Mari

mvdisco (17506) 2011-07-24 19:52
Beautiful sunset nicely presented and composed with great warm colors and light,
Excellent point of view and details,
Nice reflection on water and contrast,
Very well done.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-07-25 3:29
I couldn't write anything yesterday, as I had nothing to show.
It is probably one of the simplest image you present to us in resent days. This time the countless number of horizontal lines attract us. From the beach to the horizon, and yet further to the sun, all nicely packaged in one. It is a Very very last moment of the sunset. Reflection on the clouds is like a painting. It is a very romantic photo. Tranquility surround the viewers.
Best regards, Lisa
geoant68 (2751) 2011-07-25 8:48
the calmness and the tranquility are spreading on the scene.The colours of the sky and the placement on the horizon in the 1/3 of the frame make the image more effective.
ikeharel (48491) 2011-07-25 11:09
Really Lisa, the sea in Ireland looks a bit different from other places...
A nice take with "layeres" of sea-waves, in a nice sunset time.
Song in the attachement - most pleasent, excelent harmony, I listened.
Good morning Australia - good night from Israel.

Last weekend I have spent in Donegal. Third time is a charm means it was not raining this time. It is surely one of the most beautiful places in Ireland and especially so in a good sunlight when the colors are stunning. I went for a sunset to a beautiful Donegal beach but unfortunately the clouds were very dense in the evening and nothing came out of that. So I am very jealous for this shot. It seems like a perfect sky with a slight touch of clouds. You have well used the opportunity here. Very simple yet so impressive. I like the three layered composition.
Very well done,
chawax (17616) 2011-07-27 13:48
A nice view with a very peaceful atmosphere. The composition is very well balanced (horizon line on third). I love the lines on the sand that add some graphism. Nice sky.
marina7 (8035) 2011-07-28 7:55
What a wonderful image of a beach with the unusually layered ocean and fine texture of the sand - all warmed by the last rays of the sun. Peaceful and captivating at the same time. Lovely work.
photoray (8524) 2011-08-05 17:09
Excellent timing to catch the sun transfixed behind a cloud before it sank below the horizon.
I like the lighting, especially the sand ripple display.
amd have a great weekend.
PS: Surprised to hear you like Fitzcarraldo.
Howabout Terrence Malik flicks?
kiks (11749) 2011-08-18 2:45
Beautiful and so calm this scene. I love teh fact that the waves continue on the sand.
