Immagine spettacolare, una foto nella quale c'é tutta la tua bravura e la tua tecnica.
Splendida l'atmosfera che sei riuscita a catturare.
Un caro abbraccio

A wonderful composition full of serenity. The sky is quite fantastic and I like very much the silk like quality of the ocean with its swirling currents. Lovely range of pink and blue-grey tones. Splendid work.

Sublime! (and for the record Lisa, high horses give good views) This is truly beautiful, so calm and restful. You have tamed the sea with your excellent exposure. The colours are subtle and delicate, the textures in the waves misty and ethereal and the composition simple and understated. I really admire your artistic interpretation of coastal views. I would love to do a beach shoot with you and absorb your methods. Hugs and warmest regards rosemary

Ciao cara Lisa,
Nice to hear that you have calmed down. Just let it all wash over you and lie back and take it just like the rest of us. Funny, though, I could have sworn that I heard on the news just last night that the Australian government had just sold off all photographic rights in NSW to some Iranian media consortium - or did I get that wrong? Hee, hee, hee - as Luciano would say.
Yes, this is the sort of photograph by which we recognise you! And you've removed your "big stopper" (pleasurable though that might have been) and resorted to your more usual ND gradiuated filter.
Again, the light and your subtle use of it has made this a beautiful photograph: the brighter light on the smoothed sea is magical and contrasts well with the darker, interesting and more colourful sky. The line of the water's edge is fabulous, leading the viewer well into the picture toward the distant rocks.
Gorgeous colours, lovely light, perfect exposure and stunning details.

A nice moody shot all in blue and pink hues
Good use of the long exposure for a creamy aspect
Sergiom (39184) 2012-09-25 5:12
Very nice. The feet of your tripod and your crocs must have been wet. Very good depth and a nice touch of pink in the sky.
Have a nice day

Your capture is so beautiful that looks like unreal. Great light, great definition and fascinating colors. Good work!

a exquisite composition, that invites and entices the viewer with such an ethereal atmosphere and dreamy feel about it. Lovely soft shapes and tones with just enough detailing to leave you wanting more. Beautiful!
Regards - Brian.

The effects are beautiful. The composition great - with the lights and colours at an optimum level of saturation - heightening the effect of the curve on the beach.
The silk if the waters is very effectively done with the exposure of 8 sec.
Thanks for sharing.

Oh riecco la signora delle acque, scatto stupendo con un POV e una inquadratura D.O.C. l'effeto slow motion è meraviglioso sembra quasi nebbia, ottimo l'uso del filtro...
Ps Lisa le tue note e i tuoi scatti politici non disturbano affatto...anzi...more and more....
Yassou (460) 2012-09-25 7:37
Wonderful composition with great colours. A beautiful picture full of calm and serenity.
brianmcc (5536) 2012-09-25 11:08
this is another stunning picture in this series. the colours are beautiful, very subtle tone changes, and visually very appealing. the mood is quite magical, enhanced by the movemtn in the water which you have created perfectly with the long exposure. the rocky ledge on the right leads very well into the centre of the picture and brings the viewer right into the middle of the action.
ps. well done donegal. i'm sure your's is a happy house this week
Sonata11 (28289) 2012-09-25 11:38

a very dreamy atmosphere. I like that. I could stare at it for a long time!
carlo62 (12550) 2012-09-25 13:25
rieccola la muse delle acque, i tuoi componimenti sono mitici ed i risultati magnifici.
ACL1978 (5773) 2012-09-25 17:36
Another really lovely ethereal beach shot, Lisa. You really do capture these wonderfully, though a political rant now and again isn't a bad thing :) Nice capture both of water and sky, showing great movement in wonderful low light!
jjcordier (62280) 2012-09-25 22:45
J'aime beaucoup cette série de photos que tu as réalisée ici. Celle-ci est une de mes préférées. J'admire l'effet cotonneux créé par la longue pose et le filtre et la magnifique palette de tons pastels de l'image. C'est superbe!
dkmurphys (36759) 2012-09-26 0:33
Amazing work again. I'm fascinated about that place and I appreciate a lot your high quality and artistic sense. Well done!
kordinator (13411) 2012-09-26 1:26
A wonderfull composition.
The sky and the ocean are fantastic.
Nice harmonized pink,blue and grey color tones.
macjake (39227) 2012-09-26 2:37
oh man...Tosca's gonna flip when she see's this one!
you got my comment on FB right?
You know Tosca is gonna want you to guide her to all of these spots! lol
and i have to admit that i don't blame her.
how could you not love this place!
I wonder how it looks without the time lapse too.
wish i'd have taken it :)
ikeharel (37280) 2012-09-26 3:38
Good to return to posts pic.'s like this remote beach, where taking photos that enlight and calm the mind.
An exalted picture, one of your series of many, each one is different and show more of the majestic place so well collected. Influenced by the clouds, the whole has fabulous tones.
kathryn_weir (1742) 2012-09-26 6:46
Hello dear Lisa,
More Forresters magic. Lovely to have your both feet planted firmly on the ground again although completely justified horsemanship:)
I have myself a new pair of waterproof boots! The movement of the clouds as well as the flow of water off the shelf give a wonderfully surreal feel to this shot. The soft, muted colours just magical. I do like the feeling of menace from those breakers further out
Have a great week
ourania (12343) 2012-09-26 8:19
Ciao cara Lisa,
una bellissima impressione naturale, artistica e sensitiva. Mi piace tanto la profondita' che ci porta dentro questo ambiente magnifico, la luce dolce ed i colori pastelli. L' atmosfera e' accattivante e, malgrado la tranquilita' evocata dalle tonalita', il senso di movimento su acqua e cielo che si percepisce piu' che si osserva la vista, nasconde un' intensita' affascinante. Complimenti e grazie!
tanti saluti e buona giornata,
LOOOK13 (19022) 2012-09-26 11:43
Mysterious and fantastic...
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4435) 2012-09-26 14:56
A very dramatic image! I really liked the misty and milky effect on the waters, the hint of pink in the sky and the blue and grey tones that covers this image. The atmosphere and feel is just amazing! Wonderful capture on this one! Definitely my favorite views to capture!
Hellas (6505) 2012-09-27 3:54
The composition is very good!
The long exposure softened the sharp texture of rippling sea and the proper use of lighting gave the best result. The view provided by the cloudy sky on the horizon with openings allows light to reach our eyes nicely!
The joy of the landscape photographer is to be able to capture images like this one.
m00n (2139) 2012-09-27 6:34
very simple composition, but that unusual. dramatic stormy clouds and the power of the water element. amazing atmosphere - a very successful photo
all the best, m00n
bergese (6699) 2012-09-28 1:32
Une longue exposition qui donne un magnifique et magique effet.Un doux mélange de bleu,gris et rose.Un format qui donne une belle profondeur.
Silvio1953 (98093) 2012-09-29 4:06
Ciao Lisa, grande spettacolo, ottima esposizione, magnifica atmosfera, fantastica luce, buon week end, un abbraccio Silvio
kennyblack (4105) 2012-09-29 8:21
Ciao cara Lisa
Vedo che ti sei affezionata alla lunga esposizione che rende "soffici" le immagini e sopratutto con acqua. Molto bello il POV con un favoloso background. Molto bella e dettagliata con gestione della luce perfetta. Grazie della condivisione.
Un fortissimo abbraccio ... M & D
francio64 (38188) 2012-10-14 4:30
soltanto tu riesci a dare questo effetto all'acqua, facendo sembrare come se ci fosse la nebbia sopra, o fumo.
Lasciamo spazio alla fantasia. Brava! Complimenti!
thebest (3370) 2012-10-18 2:27
WOW!!! Like something out of a fairytale - I have to learn how to use filters etc; until then I continue to enjoy wonderful photo's such as this one Lisa... can't help picturing Pegasus the flying horse visiting your photo... ha! just my silly sense of humour.
It is a very good image well done.
Robert1969 (6224) 2012-10-26 22:50
The picture is nice rough and nice calmness
at the same time. Point of view, light
management and the compostion are, as always
