The Porto-Venere cliff on it's out-to-sea west side, like an open Geology book… Layeres on top of more ancient layeres.
A slightly diff. formation on the same place in the WS attached.
Posted here a wider perspective.
This is part of the Ligurian ridge that runs along the coast from the area of Imperia near the French boarder, down south to Sarzana, not far to the east of La-Spezia, than conjoin the Appennini's in the Toscana region.
Location on the west side of the ridge: 44.05, 9.83244

Good shot of this interesting rock formation. Like the cold blue tones of your image and perfect attention on textures. Well done, tfs!

A well framed composition of these interesting rock strata. The detail is very well rendered under a good light.

Two wonderful pictures Ike, also your workshop picture is very pleasant for look at.
This everything in a rock area.
Excellent compositio, sharpness and clarity are fantastic.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice Sunday,

A nice composition of this cliff with different layers and shades . Like those small foamy waves giving brightness to the image. I like the sharpness, colors and texture. Nice way to show both the rock and the water.

Impressive cliffs and interesting with these lines with different colors and stones, difficult contrast with waves a bit white, a detail.

very beautiful rock wall made in stripes ... we can seen clearly the different geological levels, excellent details and nice colors...

sorry, that I'm not going to make you any points for this picture you've done wonderfully, but this a rocks with blueish colors, sharpness, POV great. I like the lighting and contrast are very interesting. This photo is executed great. Thanks for sharing. I like the layers of this rocks. Perfectly well done.
All the best and have a nice Sunday,

the textures you've captured in this superbly framed picture are fascinating. Nature has built an imposing wall in this part of the coast, it's amazing to consider the millenia long process and how solid and beautiful this work is. I love the great variety of chromatic hues on the rocks, the texture, movement and luminosity of the water. The workshop picture is lovely and interesting as well. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a good week,

Great rock details. The deep depth of field and the light is perfect. A well presented crop allows eyes to remain fixed on the sharp rocks. This is a really excellent photo, and is a good example of nature photography mode. The great light on the rocks and the white water color also lends a lovely contrast to the scene. Well done.

I like the different layers of rock. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the layers. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

From very young I risked at sea.
Improdente very close to the rocks.
I see that this picture shows a wall lapped by the waves.
Beautiful landscape and too close to the boat.
Better a Commone private.
Thanks for the "sparkling" sea condisione
The geological structure shows white layers and layers of blacks, the technique of high aesthetic architectural Genoa and Sardinia and Corsica

OOps, I missed this one Ike! I like it very much, with its horizontal layers of contrasting textures and colours.
The sea adds a dynamism to the shot.
Lovely overlapping to produce vertcal lines for good composition.
Have a lovely week,

beautiful slice of this cliff showing the diferent geologic ages. I liked the visual result. beautiful details and a minimalist touch.
raszid62 (18212) 2012-09-05 0:56
Beautiful, yet these amazing rock layers arranged like a birthday cake. But swim would be dangerous here. The composition I like.
הצהריים טובים. יפה, אך שכבות סלע המדהימים האלה מסודרים כמו עוגת יום הולדת. אבל שחייה תהיה מסוכנת כאן. ההרכב שאני רוצה. .

"Perpetually" nature's beauty captured remarkably. Great interpretation in this photo, fantastic POV, composition is superb. Wonderful textures and patterns.
Have a nice evening,

in quest immsgine si possono ben vedere gli stadi di erosione e i successivi passaggi nei secoli.
mare agitato ben ripreso,

Ciao Ike, interesting view of fantastic rock formation, excellent clarity and wonderful light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

These are very beautiful but also very treacherous cliffs. I would not like to fall from them or be in a boat near them. The colour contrasts are beautiful, I like the icy colour of the water and the cliffs themselves have a wonderful texture. The tight framing makes this almost an abstract photo, which make it very artistic in my view. By cropping out the sky, you have also saved the beautiful rich colours of the two main elements in the image. Clever boy!
Un caro saluto
eldancer1 (17088) 2012-09-06 9:15
Wow! I hope nobody is stupid enough to go swimming in the area! It look awesome but could be very dangerous. Nicely captured with good details and good lighting. Well done, tfs.

Fascinating is the power of those "waves of violence"
that carve hard rock for a fascinating geology lesson!
papagolf21 (76603) 2012-10-29 4:06
Bonjour, cher Ike,
Magnifique et très intéressante composition de ces falaises disposant de strates représentant les différentes couches au cours des millions d'années (voire des milliards d'années).
Merci pour la photo présentée en atelier.
jcpix (3325) 2012-11-06 17:06
Interesting photo Ike, I like the abstract feel it displays. The close up framing of the cliffs really accentuates the detail and formation of rock in an almost "zebra-like" color pattern, which works quite nicely against the clear turquoise water. Good job on seeing and capturing this cross section of landscape, it makes for a beautiful photo. Another job well done!
elenimavrandoni (5789) 2013-01-20 12:10
Hello Ike, thanks to your beautiful picture i remember again these amazing rocks in Porto-Venere and of course the splash of the blue-green waves!
A very attractive area and picture!
Enjoy your Sunday!!
