You have those moments when everything goes well.
Okay, I follow the weather, know something about
photography and I have a lot of perseverance but
some times you must having a little luck with the situations.
That year you had nice stones in the water
with vegetation on it. A half year later, when
I try to make a better picture with the the new
5D MarkII camera, the stones were removed.
Also the sunlight works very well that week.
Offcourse I was walking in the water, the
see water (waves) were sometimes about 20cm
under the camera :-).
I hope you like this older picture, it's one
of my personal favorites.

Really nice image Robert, love the green algae which blends nicely with the blue sky.

una foto ben composta, la linea dei pali delimita il mare dal cielo.
La luce è splendida e l'effetto dell'acqua magnifico.
Una gran bella foto.

you usually do! :)

Tous les ingrédients sont réunis pour nous offrir un spectacle de grande qualité.
Très bonne journée.

Toute belle réalisation, la perspective des poteaux de bois, la transparence de l'eau avec un vert lumineux, les couleurs pastels du ciel, une image super bien réaliser et agréable a regarder

Hello Robert - I love the effect your SS has had on the underwater green weed. The colours in this shot are warm and beautiful, composition and detail are of your expected high standard. A special feature is the way the sea and sky seem to co-mingle on the horizon giving the impression of a seascape that that goes on forever. Have a lovely Sunday. Rosemary
HimalAnda (10665) 2012-06-24 2:33
I can understand that this picture is one of yours favorites because it is beautiful. The light is magic, the composition is great. You were at the right place, at the right moment.
Nard (6972) 2012-06-24 2:36
Beautiful and peaceful picture with a nice perspective ending by birds and a a wonderful light. I like the "fluo" green, the light on the wood and how that stands out the quiet sky.
Kielia (24077) 2012-06-24 2:56
this is really a masterpiece and an excellent composition. The management of the light is outstanding and the colors create a fantastic mood. I also enjoyed reading the nice note - and the title is also appropriate. Congratulation!
JanH (864) 2012-06-24 3:10
Prachtige foto. Goede compositie. Ik vind vooral de combinatie van verzadigde kleuren erg mooi.
Het effect van de algen onder water pakt goed uit.
Leuk detail zijn de vogels aan het eind van de diagonaal.
Groeten van Jan

Excelent clouds and good contrast.I like POV.Have a nice day.

Début juillet je pars pour la mer et je me promets bien de faire le même genre de photo. Je trouve celle-ci particulièrement bien réussie.
Jeppo (17645) 2012-06-24 4:43
I think you can be happy of having captured such a symphony of pastel colours.
I like the perspective and depth created by the wavebreaker
abmdsudi (53703) 2012-06-24 7:58
The long exposure has a great impact on this fabulous composition of a pure tranquil scene where those groynes help creating the depth as well as strong focal points. and What a show of colors, this shot certainly packs a punch to it and the silken water render a real moody feel with bags of atmosphere hightened by the subtle shades of blue tones in the sky. Artistic & technically excellent image.
npecanhuk (75156) 2012-06-24 8:15
Wonderful picture specially for its magnificent colors, chosen low pov, long exposure and composition!
TFS - congrats,
josepmarin (58357) 2012-06-24 11:34
It is logical that this photo is one of your personal favorites, because it is a real work of art.
I like its luminosity, its fantastic chromatic palette, the beautiful textures of the elements, and the low POV with which you have reached a deep and elegant perspective.
I cannot say no any more, only that is a superb photo.
Congratulations!! you're a great photographer.
jimkil (1706) 2012-06-24 13:46
This is fantastic man, very well done.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-06-24 14:51
Without being really natural, light and colors are superb. The composition is remarkable. The picture is bright, clean and deep. Bravo.
Have a nice day
jjcordier (79297) 2012-06-24 22:26
Encore une fantastique photo qui nous montre, une fois de plus, l'étendue de ton immense talent. Composition, lumière et couleurs sublimes.

yaya13baut (3344) 2012-06-25 11:33
lucky you were to walk in this enchanting landscape ;-)
preetty good POV (it was risky for the camera but it's worthing).
amazing light and colours, great shades in the sky and nice long time exposure effect in the water between rocks on the bottom.
Waylim (25502) 2012-06-25 18:29
Congratulations for this beautiful shot, I have to say you are a much more dedicated phtographer than I will ever be. I don't have that patience and I will not step in the water for any shot, especially if the water is cold :) Yes, even when the time is right, sometimes, it also depend very much on the POV and you have proof here, to get wet and be in the right position to get the POV and not many people will. The Result proof to be very unique and very special.
Really beautiful works, I have always admire your work since the beginning, just want reconfirm my gratitude for your hard work.

Que cor maravilhosa da agua , achei fantástica a linha em diagonal de paus na agua , bom primeiro plano com esta rocha no canto da foto , boa luz de final de dia , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Ik ben niet zeker of u met de 5D mark II dit beeld kan verbeteren, want ook al is het een pracht van een toestel de foto's moeten steeds gemaakt worden.
Deze is gemaakt en werkelijk een beauty, zonder meer.
Qua kleuren en onderwerp zitten wezekerop de zelfde lijn.
Schitterend werk, goed gedaan.
Prettige dag verder,
delpeoples (57716) 2012-07-01 2:26
Dag dear Robert
I see you are enjoying your beautiful new toy the 5DMkII. The definition and colour rendering are superb. I love the rocks that show through the limpid water and the rows of the wooden posts give a fascinating perspective and magical element.
UlfE (14641) 2012-07-08 11:16
Even if I really enjoy your magnificent photo I enjoy your note more. It is absolutely true that you have to be in the right place in the right time to take a good photo. And all of a sudden the photo opportunity is gone forever. Photographing is very often taking the opportunity when it turns up and the camera might be of less importance. I believe you did everything right here. TFS and have a nice Sunday evening!
gunbud (34066) 2012-07-08 20:22
Sensational shot with beautifully unique colors and rich testures.
Love the lush greens against the softer blues.
brianmcc (6219) 2012-07-13 15:18
the colours in the sunlight are wonderful, very nicely saturated and very appealing. the wooden posts are placed perfectly and disappearing out to the sea bringing the viewers eye along with them. the effect of the green seaweed under the water is excellent as is your inclusion of the large foreground stone.
Gigidusud (20825) 2012-07-14 3:39
It's me again!An other fantastic shot on a marvelous seascape,with splendid light and colors.Love it!
Thanks for sharing.
timecapturer (49288) 2012-07-14 4:40
been away and missed this one. What an amazing image, full of intriguing shapes, textures and detail, but it is the colours and swirling fg that makes this so tantalising and beautiful. Awesome!
fotka (4369) 2012-07-17 4:28
Wow! This is an eye catcher masterpiece. It is beautiful long perspective and perfectly saturated colors. The long exposure made wonderful picture.
sacavem (18620) 2012-08-09 6:58
What a stunning spectacle. Very good POV and nice colours.
kiks (12555) 2012-08-13 7:57
Beste Robert, ik kan begrijpen waarom deze een van je favorieten is! Prachtig licht and die groen geeft iets misterious. Prachtig gedaan.
PS alles goed met de kleine?
ilDottore (5252) 2012-08-27 17:57
Perfect composition, wonderful colours, incredible light
and LOCATION! Just 40 km from my hometown! :)
Greetings from Dublin!
kasianowak (8909) 2012-09-05 1:28
You have created an image of exceptional beauty which looks like a painting. Beautiful colours and perspective and I really like the green blurred foreground.
barni (15751) 2012-11-07 12:40
WOW... Perfect picture, The light is just beautifull

Image magnifique,très bien composée avec une maîtrise parfaite des filtres....j'adore...!!Les couleurs sont superbes.Je comprends qu'elle fasse partie de tes favorites...elle en fait aussi à présent partie des miennes.
elenimavrandoni (0) 2012-11-10 11:18
Such a great presentation and composition of warm pastel colors, soft light, great reflection, and an extraordinary perspective of the "endless" in the horizon!
fabbs99 (17165) 2012-11-13 4:00
Fascinating composition with great exposure, splendid light and wonderful warm colors.Great POV and good composition.Awesome shot!
gildasjan (43538) 2012-11-29 0:47
De très belles nuances dans ce ciel et ici le premier habille parfaitement cette composition avec ce point de lumière intense sur la roche à droite.
mkamionka (36258) 2013-02-11 14:05
another spectacular composition of yours. Everything is well thought through. I like especially the green algae on the rocks in the foreground. Very subtle light and fantastic colors! The clarity so great that I think we can spot some birds on the furthermost pales.
Longroute (19396) 2013-04-15 4:39
Happy you, happy us with this happy photo! (:-)
Lights and colours are so bright and vivid that it may be prescribed by doctors against depression! (:-)
The composition is perfect and the long palisade assures all the depth you need and which you have accustomed us with your photos!
Oldie but goldie,
ikeharel (70795) 2013-04-15 6:10
Superb colors composition, no wonder you put up this title, Robert.
Great contrast(which I value most in any photo), between sea and sky, divided diagonally by the wooden pillars on water.
Have a nice evening,
adramad (45386) 2013-04-18 8:07
A superb work, superbly composed, I like the wide perspective that gives this fence and also the good textures, large rocks also are a good item.
Beautiful range of colors, the green tint of algae in the water give a nice touch chromatic.
As usual a good management of light and great detail in the image.
Have a good afternoon.
jcpix (13916) 2013-04-26 5:26
The title speaks to your fulfillment with this picture, and it's now wonder...because is really is a great shot! The soft sunlight on the post's and rocks, especially the large one in the foreground, sets an incredibly peaceful atmosphere. The clarity into the water allows for even more color and motion, adding another dynamic to the already attractive scenery captured here. "Beautiful" may be a commonly used description, but it certainly is fitting with a photo such as this. Compliments for another successful result! Have a great day.
Friendly wishes from Arizona,
adidas5nb (5743) 2013-06-05 2:59
what a stunning pov.absolutely artistic picture.love the composition light and colors.great shot.
ourania (45088) 2013-08-02 12:50
I love this composition and its perspective, how the textured wooden poles stand out in this transparent, smooth and fragile environment. A quiet composition with a discreet solidity that allows the marvellous palette of colours mesmerise with its range, gradations, combinations and contrasts. It's amazing how this magnificent play of colours evolves around the warmly lit poles. The seagulls at the other end are a lovely and pleasant detail. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
