Late afternoon sunlight caresses the sand and sea in the tidal lagoon behind East Head in West Wittering, West Sussex, England. A lone yacht sits calmly on the waters as the tide slowly begins to ebb away from the beach.

une très belle prise de vue, la surface de l'eau et du sable humide présentent des teintes et des reflets magnifiques.
C'est bien fait

I find your picture very nice, maybe one advice, I would above a little bit cropped for 1/3 sky, this would are technical perfect, but I like your picture on these way too. .
I can real enjoy through your excellent angle this gives depth and perspective.
Composition and presentation are superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

una eccellente composizione, ottima la qualità fotografica, mi piacciono molto anche i colori.
Bello il movimento dell'acqua con i suoi riflessi.

la laguna è uno dei miei soggetti preferiti per la varietà di situazione che si possono trovare in essa e per la variabilità con le ore del giorno.
Questa che tu proponi oggi - a me del tutto sconosciuta - è straordinaria per l'ambiente naturale che tu hai saputo cogliere ottimamente in un momento di bassa marea e con un cielo blu che riempe la scenaanche con i suoi spettacolari riflessi.
Ciao e buona domenica

Another beautiful minimalist compo with a nice sky, mild light and good use of the DOF for a clear and sharp wet sand FG
have a nice sunday, best

The image is well composed, but what strikes most is the beautiful sublime light and those lovely reflections. Perfect technical presentation, great photo work. Thanks for sharing and have a pleasant Sunday afternoon.

TFS and best regards

Fabulous shot Brian! The composition is simple and uncluttered allowing the details to come to the fore. Beautiful light; I love the way it picks out the boat, textures in the wet sand and the underside of the clouds. Lots of movement in the clouds and across the water show the landscape as a living entity with moods and constantly changing details. Top class work and the type of shot I really enjoy. Warm regards Rosemary

Very charming and beautiful moment you have captured! Love the delicate tones and light which supported the mood of the scene. Very well done! Thanks for sharing.

Spectacular image! The sky is really beautiful, beautiful even the shot that starts from the first floor of the beach! Bella also that boat alone in the middle of the lake!
Best regards, Nino.

Top shot, a luxory for TE, a pic of a lanscape but plenty of quality and good taste. Thanks Brian for your profesionality.

This day last month must have been a particularly lucrative one for you - at least from the photographic point of view. Just like your last shot taken this day, the low angle, warm late afternoon sun has blessed the whole scene with the most delicious light. Not only the wet sand with its little pools, but even the clouds in the sky which are beautifully reflected on the calm water.
Your composition is excellent, the curving shoreline giving a fine "lead in" to the shot and the lone yacht perfectly placed. Gorgeous colours and light, perfect exposure and stunning detail and sharpness.

Great clarity of this photo, it just exudes peace and serenity. Fantastic play of light and colors
npecanhuk (54221) 2013-03-10 15:20
That's a wonderful picture!
Everything here pleases me a lot!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, dof, vertical format, contrasts, chosen pov and composition are all oustanding photo qualities in this image!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week,

You're a rebel Brian, you broke the rule of thirds! haha It's all in the eye of the beholder, and for me this works without any hesitation! I think that if the sky wasn't as dramatic, then it would be less impactful...but there's a lot to enjoy with its lighting, color and cloud formations. It fills the space nicely and converges perfectly to the sailboat. I particularly like how the natural foreground characteristic changes from the transparent sea floor to the solid, rippled water surface in a diagonal fashion. A great shot in a long series of fine images. Keep them coming!
Have a terrific week.

Très belle photo. Ton cadrage vertical 50/50 me convient bien tant chaque partie (ciel et plage) mérite l'attention. Une belle lumière qui donne une superbe palette de couleurs à l'image.
kasianowak (2459) 2013-03-11 3:18
Beautifully balanced composition! The lovely patters in the foreground reflect the way the clouds are moving in the sky. The boat is the icing on the cake.
Have a nice Monday

lovely in its simplicity - the sand structure in the foreground is engaging enough to make the whole image, but the lonely boat in the distance finishes off the picture masterly. Great sky and colors.
Thanks for sharing

You take seemingly empty landscapes and tun them into works of art by your clever use of light and colour. The detail shown is wonderful demonstrating that it is not empty with an array of textures, shapes and subtle color changes.
Serene and beautiful.
Kind Regards, Ann
p.s. have you been hit by the snow?

Pin sharp, great colour and exposure and a magnificent sky. All of the above enhanced by the late evening light. Excellent.
