the remains of wooden sea groynes appear to hover above the water like ghosts, as the tide surrounds them at tyrella beach in county down.
tyrella is an isolated beach in dundrum bay, situated between the seaside town of newcastle, and the lighthouse at st. john's point. the light from the lighthouse is just visible to the right of the nearest wooden post.

veramente notevole questa foto, il mira ed il cielo con le sue tenui sfumature si uniscono e l'occhio seguie i pali fino all'infinito.

Minimalist but what a moody all-blue shot, with a nice perspective afforded by the line of poles
have a nice sunday
All the best

This is a fabulous minimalistic study in blue tones. The line of sea groynes certainly seem to be going into infinity. Excellent slow shutter speed work - love it!

Good Morning Brian,
This shot sort of left me speechless ... well, you know what I mean, since I am typing, not speaking!!
It is incredibly beautiful, atmospheric, tranquil and yet mysterious; it creates these effects with the minimum of features! Wonderful art!
Have a lovely Sunday,

Groynes! Is that what those things are called? I've learnt something new for sure.
But enough raving, onto your stunning photo. It's a masterpiece in blue. Love the long exposure and the perspective created by those groynes. The long exposure has had a supernatural effect on the ocean. Magnificent shot, certainly one of your best and such a pleasure to view.
Have a great Sunday

lovely blue,it`s so amazing and it`s captured in a very special moments.
macjake (52962) 2012-03-04 5:06
very nice work here.
the fading lines in the purple/blue world works so effectively from a visual point of view.
its a wonderful photo.
tyro (18904) 2012-03-04 5:29
This is pure tranquillity!
Very well worth the early morning rise from your scratcher, this one epitomises tranquillity and peace. The long shutter opening has smoothed the water's surface beautifully and enhanced the soft colours and reflections wonderfully. The composition is excellent, the groynes perfectly placed and, indeed, appearing to disappear off to infinity. The sharpness and detail are exquisite and we can clearly see the lighthouse's light shining in the very far distance.
Perfect exposure and lovely colours.
P.S. Did you use any sort of filters for this one?
rychem (20063) 2012-03-04 8:04
Excellent minimalaist photo, one subject, one color with different tones, compliments
Johanet (218) 2012-03-04 9:29
Brian I love this....
Technically everything is perfect, as you probably know. Perfect thirds, perfect leading line, perfectly exposed.
But the feel of this picture is what makes it awesome. The moody blue hues are magical.
jlbrthnn (79791) 2012-03-04 11:24
The horizon separates the air and water, the same beautiful blue color. Poles diagonally add depth. Excellent creative achievement. Bravo.
Have a nice evening
dkmurphys (47010) 2012-03-05 7:23
A perfect graphical composition and a fine perspective. Everything looks amazing and very...out of the Earth.
Have a good week.
dta (63508) 2012-03-05 7:26
Hello Brian ,
The very long exposure and the blur tonalities create a very specail , but great atmosphere , in this minimalistic composition .
Well done .
ChrisJ (94842) 2012-03-05 7:26
A nice minimalist shot with superb blue tones. Good graphism & repetition of the black poles. I like the subtle warm cold color contrasts between the orange & blue. I like the solitary light on the horizon. Tfs!
Noel_Byrne (21474) 2012-03-05 8:08
Such wonderful deep blues in this shot, and the composition of the wooden slats certainly does pull in teh eye and lead the viewer to infinity. Perfect name for this beautiful shot.

Hello Brian !
The title explains the nature of this beautiful image so well and much more. The presented image is so perfect in every possible manner that it is totally untouchable. The overall blue tone of the image, and its almost metallic glow is magical as if you have taken and have spread the colours on a series of silver foils. The luminosity of the image also participates to create an atmosphere, which is so serene and clean. The gravity of the image comes together on the horizon as if nature itself has decided to do so. I am sitting here trying to feel the beauty it possesses. The captivating quality, which comes to the observer is so rewarding. This is an image that exists beyond my capacity to explain and to describe. I am simply compelled to absorb all I can. This is truly an achievement. The quality of the photo is surpassing anyone’s imagination.
With my best and warm regards,
Have a very pleasant evening, Brian

succès non volé pour cette photo qui baigne dans les bleus les plus accrocheurs, le peu de rose trahit que le soleil n'est pas loin.
Presque 1/3 2/3, ces poteaux qui marquent les distances, guident le regard vers l'infini, (titre bien choisi),
c'est d'une douceur et d'une calme remarquables.
My best regards.
COSTANTINO (51956) 2012-03-08 12:09

I like a lot this minimalistic shot. Impresses the composition with the reflections and the symmetry a very good idea.

this scenery is extremely impressive and attractive. The blue tones all through out caught my attention, I may be biased with blue but that's not the case. The minimalist element is astonishing. The long exposure did a superb effect. Great work!
SWEETFREEDOM (21754) 2012-03-11 5:04
beautiful athmosphere and mood, great blue compo and technique.
abmdsudi (40240) 2012-03-11 5:20
This shot at blue hour certainly packs a punch to it., I love the dissapearing factor depicted but I quite like the minimalist look of this. Lots of 'feel' to this shot, lovely silken water and the great sky creates a real moody and eerie but with bags of atmosphere hightened by the subtle shades of blue tones. Artistic & technically excellent image rendering with great tones, geometric perspective and clarity, Great shot.
npecanhuk (61604) 2012-03-11 5:48
All that blue, it's so beautiful!
Chosen pov, composition, exposure and level of sharpness are all excellent and really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
bayno (18342) 2012-03-11 6:41

C'est simple mais d'une grande beauté et si apaisante a regarder, j'aime la perspective infinie des piquets et leurs reflets, la douceur des couleurs du ciel, vraiment une image magnifique

this picture, that is taken from a
great point of view and has a great
composition and light management.
paololg (31448) 2012-03-28 9:51
Ciao dear Brian,
maybe because blue is my favorite color, or maybe just because this picture has an infinite depth, but I must tell you that you did a masterpiece. The fading of the colors is amazing, without too much noise but with good sharpness. Even the light is perfectly balanced. Sincere compliments, dear friend, this is a feast for the eyes!
Ciao, have a nice Thursday!
kennyblack (4207) 2012-04-01 10:09
Image that attracts the 'eye for color and the unusual layout of the posts that give a sense of continuity and depth. I like the blue filter that makes everything ... special.
Greetings and best wishes for good evening ... Marino
