Hello Stephen - It is always a delight to look at your well-managed landscape work. This shot is no different. I think what impresses me most, apart from the composition, is the sky. You have achieved a super colour graduation in warm hues and without any wild saturation. Your exposure balance is good too with just enough detail in the rocks and no loss in the highlights. The only thing I will nit-pick on is the telegraph pole, it adds nothing to the composition and perhaps you could remove it. A serene and beautiful shot. Best regards Rosemary

I haven't written in ages but I haven't forgotten you! Hope all is well!!
What a beautiful mood you captured here. Excellent management of the long exposure to get that silky water, but no oe on the light house. The clouds are lovely and that moon makes the composition extra special.
Take good care, my friend!

I've been there a few weeks ago but I had not posted my pictures from there again. But it will be hard to do it after such a great photo of this place ! You caught an incredible sunset sky and I love the fog effect on the water. Very well done !
