White Park Bay
The spectacular sandy beach forms a white arc between two headlands on the North Antrim Coast. Its secluded location means that even on a busy day there is plenty of room for quiet relaxation. The beach is backed by ancient dunes that provide a range of rich habitats for bird and animal life.

Great composition with an excellent exposure time, that creat a nice moving effect on the water.

Really spectacular shot of this location - you've packed a lot in - and my interest and fascination run right from foreground to background.

In itself this landscape looks excellent, but with the added effect of the long shutter time the scene becomes more than excellent. Amazed would be the right word, while at the same time refering to the quotes of certain gramatical geniuses.
Amazing; to be struck with awe at a excellence of a performance/view/result etc.
It simply looks amazing.
At first glance I could have swore you used a pola filter... I know you might have but I won't come to that conclusion by myself.
The lowlight conditions in this photo works great to really pull out the subtle colours of the scenery and the very pale but all so familiar blue/greenish tint of teh ocean.
Composition wise the photo is good, what I would guess was a quite boring looking sky has been left out in favour of the more interesting colours and features of the beach and the water.
I really must say this, it is proparbly one of the best I have seen in some time.
Thank you for sharing.

That's a great landscape. I like the last light of the day that you captured and the soft colour in water and sand.
Very well done.

A very nice early evening (?) photo. Good compo with the two rocks off center.
The long exposuretime works not only on the short distance but is also visible on the waves in the back. Good lightmanagement.

This is a nice long exposure. The effect on the water is great as is your sharpness and DOF. The late afternoon light gives nice colors to the sky and water.

This is a superb image. I like the colours and the moody lighting. The movement in the water looks great. Very nice.
