The view is extremely beautiful and you did a great job here with such a wonderful composition. Love the pastel cold tones and soft water reflection effect which makes the view very eye-catching. Well done!
Have a nice weekend!

a beautiful shot this. It has a romantic appeal about it and that comes I think from the intense relationship between the earth and sky here. Glorious light in the sky and mirrored in the water so exquisitely. Executed perfectly as always and a magnificent presentation. Like it a lot!
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

Great title Lisa, perfect for the pastels which are beautifully rendered in this view. I just love the pink tones especially those on the bank of cumulus on the horizon. The pink reflection on the pools of water are also finely captured and they contrast attractively with the steely blue-grey reflections of the sky. Nature's paintbrush provided you with good opportunities and you shot has done more than justice to the display. Beautiful and a pleasure to view. Warm regards rosemary

A beautiful serene composition. with loads of atmosphere. Love that pink tinged sky and those lovely reflections.
I am off to Thailand next weekend for almost a fortnight. Hope to come back with lots of pictures.

Ciao Lisa,c'e' tutta la tua classe qui dentro,in piu' hai avuto la fortuna e la bravura di trovare la nuvola rosa che spacca la prospettiva e crea un effetto magnifico,grande qualita' come sempre! Buon weekend e complimenti,Luciano

I don't want to look stupid, but what is the Barbie Hour. I like this shot a lot and the use of the filter provide a long exposure that provide a nice texture on the water and the sky.
Have a nice weekend
PS. In the last Masterchef Australia, the were at Kangourou Island. What a nice picture site it was.

Ciao "Signora delle acque"
quelle sfumature rosa sono un tocco magico, hai avuto la fortuna di trovarle, ma anche tanta bravura nel saperle sfruttare al meglio.
Immagine elegante e piena di atmosfera.
chawax (14906) 2013-02-09 8:17
Nice blue hour colours ! I love the pink colour in the sky. The grey graduated filter helped you to make a good exposure.
ACL1978 (5783) 2013-02-09 8:20
Like Serge, I've never heard the term 'Barbie Hour' - please educate me! I'm assuming it has something to do with the pink hue of parts of the sky...
I like the symmetry of this shot, with the rocks at right standing in for a reflection of the cliff face. The sand creates some fascinating patterns, leading up to the shore and then to the very colorful sky. Great exposure time too, smoothing the water but maintaining the shape of those waves rolling in. Thanks!
Noel_Byrne (7374) 2013-02-09 8:37
You have such superb skies, and this is no exception. The ribbons of red light through the sky is really beautiful, and such a bonus that it reflects on the wet sand too. Then we have wonderful crashing waves. Superb image with lots of beautiful elements to enjoy. The streak of red in the sky looks almost like a hand reaching down into the ocean. A lovely place.
Thanks for your comments on my pics Lisa, and regarding what you said about the Irish government and the Magdelenes, yes, it is a tragic fact that the current prime minister seems to be doing everything to avoid making a full state apology. I suspect that this more to do with the potential for a class action lawsuit that his own pride, but nonetheless, a horrible thing for those poor women. Our minister for children was on a talk show last week, and the audience happily booed and hissed at her when she said it was beyond her ability to convince the prime minister to change his mind.
Some politicians really show themsevels as snivelling cowards at times.
Have a brilliant Sunday!
All the best
P.S. Come on Barbie, lets go party, ah, ah ah.
You have a unique ability to put the weirdest songs in my mind :)
krzychu30 (8879) 2013-02-09 8:38
I´ve just compared this one with your previous shot from this place.It has the same romantic and pleasant mood,but I like that you´ve enclosed in the frame the cliff on the right.I find this kind of coast very picturesque.And the touch of pink in the sky is just marvelous.I could admire this beautiful view for hours.If only blue hour could last longer:)
Have a nice weekend
macjake (39235) 2013-02-09 8:42
thats exactly what i said to myself as i viewed this for the first time.
Its funny....with Tosca loving these beach type photos, rocky shorelines and such - she hasn't even mentioned about traveling to Australia! perhaps its just so far away its kind of out of sight out of mind type of thinking. but she would love it in places like this.
its refreshing to see some orange pinkish tones in the skyline, livens it up a bit.
its just a lovely shot...what can i say? :)
cornejo (18088) 2013-02-09 11:00
Hello Lisa, very nice picture of this beautiful view of this wonderful place. A nice and interesting with very good image sharpness, depth, light and color. A perfectly charming and good job done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good morning and happy Sunday.
A warm hug from southern Spain.
InasiaJones (29343) 2013-02-09 16:05
This is a very attractive landscape, simple in terms of layers of elements, but complex with its texture, both on the beach and in the sky.
You played it safe this time, not risking to get wet and keeping your distance from the waves and focusing on the reflections on the water surface.
Good and peaceful mood.
thebest (3370) 2013-02-09 16:50
This is beautiful I have never heard of this beach on the South Coast or Kioloa... I shall have to look it up.
You have captured a superb shot here - I love the mood of the photo - the colours & the textures are fabulous.
Enjoy your weekend.
mirosu (5533) 2013-02-09 19:13
This is a substantial picture of the early morning or late afternoon (??) sky, there are so many lovely and interesting elements that make it spectacular. I like very much the composition and the fascinating sky colors and and the soft reflections on the water. The dark rocks in water and landscape anchors the composition and the distant horizont reflect the shapes of the white clouds. The atmosphere is really suggestive. Well done IMO.
Sonata11 (28341) 2013-02-09 20:33
Very beautiful composition of this coastline with tranquil atmosphere and an amazingly beautiful sky and its reflection. Very well executed photo. Colors, sharpness, light, POV and DOF are very well done. Thanks for sharing.
All the best and have a great Sunday,
sabermonajati (7595) 2013-02-09 21:39
amazing place ,fascinating light and nice form from waves you captured.
jjcordier (62344) 2013-02-09 22:08
Barbie Hour....le titre me fait sourire mais correspond bien à l'image. Les couleurs pastels sont vraiment très belles, tant dans le ciel que dans les reflets. Très belle photo.
dkmurphys (36819) 2013-02-10 1:40
Lovely soft colors and the same deep calm atmosphere. Seems like the nature has stopped there. Well taken, have a fine week.
Romano46 (4930) 2013-02-10 2:15
questa è una grandissima foto e ne puoi andare ben fiera!
Il paesaggio ripreso è spettacolare, ma tu l'hai saputo riprendere in maniera superba, cogliendone, grazie alla grande profondità di campo scelta, tutte le infinite sfumature di colore e trasformando con il lento tempo si scatto il mare in un fazzoletto di bianchi e blu.
Sei stata bravissima e il risultato si vede: nitidezza e colori dominano incontrastati e aiutano a sognare questi angoli di mondo.
Ciao e buona domenica
jemaflor (68943) 2013-02-10 2:17
Lovely light and soft colors, very well mananged, I like it a lot with these pink tones and these reflections, tfs.
marabu61 (3924) 2013-02-10 2:55
And you did it again, this is even better than the opposite view. Lovely colors bathed in a gorgeous light, this is a serene and calm atmosphere and a great place to be to enjoy a sunset. A true work of art.
have a good Sunday
abmdsudi (26281) 2013-02-10 6:20
Awesome image with a peaceful atmosphere with the pastel sky almost like a watercolour. Really like the composition and very clever with the foreground interest. the silky water and the sheen on the reflection lift the image to make it that more special. Colour, clarity and contrast are just beautiful. I think this is one of the best I have seen. Congrats.
olive224 (1227) 2013-02-10 11:52
Beautiful blue hour landscape shot !
The sharpness is perfect and the composition very interesting ;) I like the reflections of the red clouds in the FG, and the rocks near the waves...
It is a very good job ;) TFS
danos (74020) 2013-02-10 23:19
charmy the title of the photo with the pink colour tints to makes the image so beautiful and unique.I like the foreground reflections as the tranquility of the image.
pajaran (36246) 2013-02-10 23:50

Ola Lisa ,
Bonitas as cores em final de dia nesta praia com estes reflexos nestas rochas cobertas de agua ,achei lindo o céu , qualquer dia tenho de comprar um filtro Lee são fantásticos , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
ikeharel (37356) 2013-02-11 7:12
Magic moment on the rocky beach, Lisa, and as reversed from previous photo - we get to grasp the full fantastic view over there.
Golden light on the clouds, painted the water as well.
Royaldevon (17791) 2013-02-12 1:06
From your message, I have just learned the meaning of 'Barbie Hour'. I suppose I should have worked it out myself, but its good to have the terminology confirmed. I've a feeling it might drop into general usage at my home!
A beautifully composed shot, really using the idea of thirds. I like the contast between the smooth, mirror-like reflections in the f/g and the beating surf in the b/g. The sky colours are lovely.
Have a geat day,
Gigidusud (8078) 2013-02-12 3:53
Ciao cara Lisa,
Fantastica questa barbie hour!Mi piace il riflesso delle nuvole rosa nell'acqua.Grande qualità come sempre amica.
mkamionka (24537) 2013-02-12 4:12
beautiful composition. This one is even more attractive than the previous one, I believe.
I like the fragment of the coast in the right. Together with the rocks it makes a pleasant triangle cutting into the frame and conributing to a nice geometry.
The composition is so well thought through! Amazing performance with the DOF just perfect.
The title very suitable and funny.
Excellent work, I have to finally make use of the fact that I am waking up almost every day in the middle of the night -and I should stand up and go for some shooting at strange hours...
ourania (12397) 2013-02-12 8:39
Ciao cara Lisa,
mi piace tantissimo la profondita' e la tranquilita' di questa costa. I colori sono incantevoli e creano un' impressione di grandissimo fascino che non ci lascia allontanare lo sguardo. C' e' armonia nelle linee e nella composizione ma anche nelle tonalita' che si contrastano con moderazione. Magnifico lavoro, complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,
Cricri (86463) 2013-02-12 11:04
Hi dear Lisa
Un endroit sauvage attirant en plus avec de jolies teintes rosée du coucher du soleil, un instant qu'il ne fallait pas louper et c'est réussi, c'est tout simplement très plaisant
Kielia (20463) 2013-02-13 5:46
what a lovely impression you are presenting this time! The composition is excellent and the sunset colors are very beautiful. The light mirrored in the water makes the image very attractive. My compliments!
fabianoleite (9016) 2013-02-14 16:33
Hi, Lisa. Long time no see. This is your style which I like, desert paradises with great colors and lights - all very good. The force of nature, always. Nice work, congratulations!
gus72 (2508) 2013-02-15 16:34
Ciao Bambina !!
You are presenting another masterpiece, great combinations of textures, colours and a special mood.I am glad that you went to the south Coast.... it is full of surprises.
My next week photo in Te is a sculpture in Sydney to rival your Porcellino... the challenge to you is to find out where is located ?????
Have a lovely week end.
Un calido abrazo
kiks (11381) 2013-02-24 10:13
Hi Lisa, this is realy your pallet of colors. Beautiful the turquoise reflecting on the little pools.
ChrisJ (86876) 2013-03-05 12:54
Missed this one and it's a corker! Wonderful reflections in the water especially the patch of orange sky which gives a superb warm cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and well composed using the rule of thirds. Good shadow detail in the cliff, & tfs!
