We had spent the evening on Widemouth beach having a BBQ,although the weather had been changeable all day as the sun set so the lovely evening colours appeared.
The beach is ideal for families and offers a variety of seaside activities. Whether you wish to swim, sunbathe, surf, hunt for marine life in the hundreds of rock pools or just comb the beach for that personal memento, Widemouth offers all this and more. There is ample parking at Widemouth and there are several campsites and other forms of accommodation in the locality. The sun is on the beach almost all of the day with the exception of very early in the morning and the sunsets here are fabulous. This stretch of coast is steeped in the smuggling history of times before, and not far south of Widemouth bay can be found some amazing little inlets and coves.

Very nice view of the sea, with some pleasing details in the water, the shapes of the waves create good effect, just fine for the viewer's eye. I like how the sun has been sliced here, just barely showing the sun itself, while its energy reaches to the scene from the right, lighting up the waves with golden tones subtly. Regards, Petar.

what I like the most about this picture is simple elegance of the composition. The rock sticking out of the sea makes it more diversified, but the prettiest I think is the water which thanks to the long exposure got very smooth look. The whole photo also benefits very much from atmospheric colors and well handled light.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

This is really quite eerie and unworldly. Superb light and colours in the sky and the whirling patterns of the waves stopped as if in slow motion beneath. I like it very much. Inspiring photography.

Good creative image showing the isolated hill and sun rise. Colours are very well managed. In my opinion full sun would have been good for this pic.

Simple yet very effective and pleasing composition here. The colors are extra, the burning sky sublime and the lonely rock balances the dynamic sea perfectly.
have a great time

this is nicely composed with that dramatic looking rock sitting on the thirds line. Love the colours, orange, mauves and ice blue. The creamy texture of the water created by a long exposure gives a painterly effect.

A simple composition but a very effective image. Beautiful colours in the sky. Fantastic light skimming the moving water.

Ciao dear Les
Ahhh now this is a photo after my own heart. The beautiful pastel tones immediately grab the eye, as do the impressive sea stacks. The water looks quite perilous, and conjures up images of pirates and hidden caves amongst the rock. A beautiful slow exposure, impressive work.
Ps: as I went sliding down that rock at Bondi I thought of you, wondering how the hell you got down there so gracefully :)
Hugs to you and your gorgeous lady, will we be seeing you soon?

Wonderful sunset with this simple but splendid sky.I like the brightness of the colours of the sky,it seems to be a watercolour (and I like painting with watercolours).
And the foreground is very impressive.The sea is very nice with a beautiful steamy effect and the rocks emerging from the waves.
A very nice composition,your picture,with a lot of serenity is certainly an excellent remedy for stress.

I like the way you have capture the power of the sea. The wideness of the area is givong depth to the composition. The sunset is giving nicr colors to the sky. Have a nice day.
