This was taken at Forresters Beach on the New South Wales Central Coast in the company of the lovely Kathryn (KWeir).
The light was just amazing and the sea was wild. If you can see the rocks to the left, I have a photo of Kathryn standing on one of them in order to get her shot. She's a very brave lady.
The soundtrack to this photo is also the photo's title, it's a song by Irish band The Cranberries here:

Wonderful scene. The long exposure added more attractive to your superb shot. The golden clouds in background excellently framed in this photo. Very well done.

Taken with a bit long exposure, the water has a silky texture, especially over the rocks.
Clouds over the horizon are beautifully golden lightened.
Keep dreaming, dear - have a nice week ahead.
Zolive (5935) 2013-04-21 2:39
wonderful sea scape with great colors and atmosphere. "Long" exposure give nice effet to the water and golden clouds are beautiful. That give a very good contrast.

Ciao Cara Lisa,
Wow! Veramente hai ben trovato il titolo e una bella canzone per accompagnarla. Un vero sogno questa foto! Un bel effetto sull'acqua con splendidi colori pastello. Un capolavoro come sempre!Ti auguro una bella serata.
PaulVDV (21955) 2013-04-21 3:09
The sea looks very wild. Only the sunlit clouds on the horizon evoke a calmer feeling.
The rocks just below the water surface seem to form a kind of curving path in the sea. Very curious and beautiful!
Best regards, Paul

questa tua foto è un vero sogno .
E' talmente bella e perfetta e piena di suggestione che ho pensato bene di conservarla tra le mie preferite per rivederla di tanto in tanto.
Complimenti sei veramente non brava, ma bravissima.
Ciao e buona giornata
siudzi (33047) 2013-04-21 3:44
Wow! What a superb landscape post taken during so special and unique moment. The visual effect with pastel tones and soft light is extremely beautiful. Well done. TFS. Like it a lot!
krzychu30 (15496) 2013-04-21 3:46
title you chose for this beautiful picture is not only apt,but also meaningful.I think the most significant part of the image are these amazing and so beautifully illuminated cloud formations.They create the whole unique and dreamy mood of this scene.I like also the way you captured movement of the water in the FG(only 0.8sec shutter speed,but it was enough to create so nice effect).
Magnificent and very atmospheric composition!
Sergiom (58617) 2013-04-21 4:33
The long exposure gives a nice texture to the sea. You have very nice beaches down under.My cousin just came back from a 2 months trip in Australia and New Zeland and can't stop talking about it.
janneman (2538) 2013-04-21 5:53
I can belevie in dreaming my dreams here!
The light is perfect and so is te compostion.
macjake (55504) 2013-04-21 6:24
another great shot to add to your gallery Lisa.
I know i've mentioned it to you before, but when we eventually do make it to Aussie Land, its THESE scene's and locations that Tosca will want to visit, we'll have to make that happen for her :)
I really like how the right side of the water is smooth like ice, and the left is slowly moving like silky blue-grey ketchup! :)
the low laying cloud coverage adds alot too, lets not forget about that! wonderful shot!
I know its 1130 pm your time in Sydney right now, but its only 630 am here on Sunday the 21st of April...
its Tosca's B-day today :)
npecanhuk (64182) 2013-04-21 6:25
Very beautiful picture, specially for its colors, long exposure and composition! I love that sky!
TFS - congrats,
ourania (30097) 2013-04-21 6:50
Ciao cara Lisa,
il mare e' tanto spettacolare ed affascinante, gli hai dato un aspetto molto particolare, la sua mozione incessante viene descritta molto artisticamente ed effettivamente. Mi piace tantissimo la profondita', l' illuminazione, l' intensita' nell' atmosfera, la consistenza dei colori e le loro variazioni secondo il tocco della luce. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona settimana,
SnapRJW (30909) 2013-04-21 7:12
Hello Lisa - an incredible collection of textures in this superb seascape and a beautiful delicate palette that adds an ethereal feel to the shot. I love the way the clouds give extra depth to the shot. Beautiful. Warmest wishes Rosemary
CLODO (30044) 2013-04-21 7:41
Amazing nature scene, the golden clouds contrasting with the blue sea. The long exposure softens the waves crashing on the rocks. Katryn has disappeared, mayday, mayday!!!!
Noel_Byrne (23252) 2013-04-21 8:50
Stunning seascape, and the colours and clouds add so much. I love these long exposures on the water, it almost looks as if it is two rivers crashing into each other. Beautiful that the moon managed to sneak into the shot too!
Have a great week!
cargus (8094) 2013-04-21 10:06
Spectacular image, excellent composition, beautiful colors, well framed and played, well done.
Robert1969 (6954) 2013-04-21 10:38
A picture with a lots of depth and calmness.
Point of view, composition and the light
management are great.
ktanska (24618) 2013-04-21 12:36
I think it's those clouds that make this different from your many seaside views. Lots of small details, Warm light on clouds and cool blues on water. That is beautiful, small aperture and grad filter are in good use on this one.
carlo62 (31324) 2013-04-21 14:34
hai unito un cielo ed un mare dalle forme e dai colori spettacolari.
Questo è un genere foto in cui tu sei una garanzia di risultato, niente da aggiungere, se non...bella.
Sonata11 (33225) 2013-04-21 20:45
Hello dear Lisa,
Wow! I really enjoy your spectacular seascape, very well done with contrasts, light , colors, sharpness to emphasize the mood in this photo. I like it. Tfs,
All the best,
jjcordier (75590) 2013-04-21 21:56
Magnifique "interprétation" de ce paysage marin avec un superbe effet longue pose sur la mer et une superbe luminosité du ciel en arrière plan. Très belle réalisation.
ifege (10223) 2013-04-21 23:48
Hi Lisa - you always seem to be dreaming of slow water effects - and they work as does this one!
dkmurphys (48446) 2013-04-21 23:58
Almost unreal scene. How lucky you are to see such impressive scenes.
PS: Cranberries rules!:P
sevy (15359) 2013-04-22 0:06
A nice dreamlike mood with soft light and watercolors.
Efficient composition with the stones starting from foreground and drawing a curved diagonale line pushing the look in depth.
I also like the color contrast between blue and orange.
I feel the shot could have supported a bit more sharpness but perhaps it is coming from the almost 1s exposure time?
mesutilgim (82990) 2013-04-22 3:28
Amazing capture ! Almost an apocalyptic scenery with great effect.
TFS and best regards
Silvio1953 (120522) 2013-04-22 5:48
Ciao Lisa, li facessi tutte le notti dei sogni belli così, grande esposizione, bravissima, ciao Silvio
ChrisJ (96568) 2013-04-23 0:02
A well composed shot withe the horizon line placed well away from the centre. I like the motion blurres waves and the softness, yet the image is sharp. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the orange tinted clouds and blue sea and sky. The moon is a nice addition too. Have a nice week!
GiovanniG (2548) 2013-04-23 2:15
What a perfect capture! Your point of view chosen so well with an eye for the thirds. Just fantastic! Bravo Lisa!!
I will be added to my favorites for sure!
marabu61 (8139) 2013-04-23 6:29
You know I love long exposure shots as this very much. Here the water looks almost like smoke and the colors of the water, rocks and sky are simply gorgeous. And as usual your soundtrack is spot on again for this one. Truly a lovely picture indeed.
have a good day
PS: I haven't seen any work by Kathryn here lately, I hope she is fine?
bayno (18342) 2013-04-23 8:16
non potevi scegliere titolo migliore per questo tuo masterpiece, tecnicamente perfetto e con delle tonalità stupende...i toni freddi si mixano perfettamente con i toni caldi e l'effetto movimento è davvero notevole con le rocce che fungono da ottimo punto focale...TANTA ROBA!!!
un salutone da Roma...
sabermonajati (9309) 2013-04-23 13:01
fascinating frame you captured.i like it.
mkamionka (30212) 2013-04-23 13:29
beautiful seascape. Three elements: water, earth and air seem to be in a good balance here. The rocks you have in the foreground are great but they seem kind of unreliable and I am not sure if I would enjoy getting wet while trying to set up my tripod in there :)
Lovely sky too with very attractive clouds.
korbee (6617) 2013-04-25 12:26
Typical photo where you can you all the fantasies Lisa!
It all very simple,just the sea and the air,and yourself..born and grown up near the sea,this photo tell me everything,perfect to let your thoughts go,or make your head empty...
adores (36121) 2013-04-25 15:47
Another great shot of a beach! I like the exposure, the colours and that layer of little clouds. You have chosen the time of the day very well also. Early morning, right? The light and the tonalities are really good!
KristinsCamera (2373) 2013-07-23 21:41
my dear lisa,
my last note before heading off to sleep, so the title drew me in & i'm glad it did.
this is a fantasy shot, an illustration for a dream world. photographs like this could inspire an entire film to be built around them.
surreal & lovely ~ thanks & goodnight :)
