A walk between Ballintoy and Whitepark Bay in the distance will take you along a trodden path since man first set foot here some 10,000 years ago. The figures and voices of the past have long faded leaving us to speculate on the lives of our ancestors thousands years ago, their world outlook, and their spiritual beliefs. There is certainly something unique about this part of the north antrim coast which goes beyond the natural beauty.

Good use of the long exposure, the steamy look is real good.

Another well chosen set up, giving bags of detail in the foreground and a fascinating backdrop. If you're not working for the NI Tourist Board, you probably should be!

Good work to capture this beautiful image. Very good color, contrast and definition. Excellent overexposing.
Regards and have a nice week

A nice view, the effect on the water is nice, colors and composition with the foreground well done.

Beautiful long expo. DOF is perfect as light and color are.
Good job, Andrea

truly magical atmosphere captured in this photo. The sea that looks like a fog or mist and the nice verticals of the reeds look already very good on their own. But the unusual rock formations in the background make the photo even more interesting. Maybe, the only problem, but again I am not sure, somehow it seems to me that the view is slightly leaning to the left side. Not sure, maybe just an optical trick...
Best regards Kristof

Encore une des fabuleuses photos dont tu as le secret. Couleurs, lumière, composition....tout me plait ici.

I really like the palette of colour that exists in this shot - the straw-like winter grass, the cold blue sky and grey rocks. All in a perfectly exposed composition.
Are you finding the step up in number of pixels on your new camera is a noticable improvement, or just increases the time and space requirements of doing anything on the computer?!

Hi Stephen. First thing I did was look for the shutter speed, but it doesn't show up. Very good shot, this one. Lovely, rich colours and interesting textures on the rocks. Great mistiness there in the shallows, well captured.
