Of course, a rock formation, or a mountain have been
better, but sometimes you do not complain, simplicity
can be also beautiful (and the bag on my bike is
too small to carry what I wrote above :-)). The
forground was perhaps 1.2 meter (4 feet) wide.
I enjoyed from the peace and the sounds of the sea,
along with the beautiful moment.
So I tried to made perhaps one of my simplest
picture of the last four years, which is still

Good Morning Robert,
Yes, simplicity is a bonus in your photograph.
It is like an introduction to meditation.
The converging lines direct us from the rough to the smooth, from the cool to the warmth.
A delightful shot.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Splendid seascape with beautiful pastel tones, nice reflections and great depth. I like a lot!
Have a nice Sunday.

Dit is de hoek waar ik het liefst uit werk, recht op recht aan.
Op deze manier creëert men diepte en perspectief.
het beetje groen tussen de stenen maakt deze foto meer aantrekkelijk.
Wat ik bijzonder vind is de mooie kleur aan de hemel en de weerspiegeling in het water
Vakkundig afgewerkt, mooi gedaan bedankt.

Simple? Yes, minimalist, I would also say, but very nice. The soft tones are beautiful, the composition is perfect, playing with the symetry.
williewhistler (14999) 2013-05-19 2:41
the pastel colours bring a very serene feeling to an imaginatively composed sea scene,just lovely.
gojo (1769) 2013-05-19 2:59
Sometimes wide angle only distorts. Here it creates! Very nice, especially the FG.
timecapturer (49288) 2013-05-19 3:13
simple yes, but enticingly beautiful! A calm atmosphere and exquisite light that makes the mood all the more captivating. Executed and presented to your usual high quality, but then you never disappoint me.
Enjoy a peaceful Sunday - Brian.

Seems to me as the extended rocks onto the water, divids two sides of the sea: the right has a golden tone dominating, while the left side is under some dark shades.
long shutter provided a marvelous effect on the pic. as a whole.
Simple yet beautiful, well done.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-05-19 3:38
sei un esperto di questi soggettri e riesci sempre a fare delle ottime realizzazioni.
Anche questa è splendida nella sua semplicità e sempre ricca di eccellente nitidezza.
Belli i colori e la composizione.
Un eccellente lavoto frutto di un'ottima tecnica.
Ciao e buona domenica
danos (88883) 2013-05-19 4:06
nice the view a the creative perspective from the rock formation as lead-in the eye to the endless horiozon with this superb sunset colours in the sky..
I like this beautiful scenery as the excellent presentation of this calmy and tranquil place.
Have a good Sunsday,Danos

On dirait que la pointe de rochers s'avance pour séparer la mer en deux. J'aime le côté plus sombre qui s'oppose au côté plus lumineux. J'aime les couleurs douces et la texture de l'eau.
Miguel82 (25491) 2013-05-19 5:31
Beautiful sunset, that place looks unreal
Excellent sharpness, fine colors and exposition
Have a good sunday
manrezaei (1837) 2013-05-19 5:42
An other eye catcher shot by you. Very nice shot. Great exposure, superb colors and lights you captured here. Very well done.
sabermonajati (9887) 2013-05-19 6:13
pleasant pay sage with attractive light and colors you captured.
berek (41101) 2013-05-19 6:47
Light is very successful. I loved the colors of the sunset. point of view is excellent.
marabu61 (9043) 2013-05-19 7:36
Now simplicity is often the best as you prove beautifully with this wonderful composition. The eye follows the stony path in to the sea, where the water has been rendered beautifully silky due to the longer exposure and the colors are gorgeous.
have a good sunday
ourania (34433) 2013-05-19 8:27
I like very much this image and the way you made its simple composition look so lovely and rewarding. The sense of depth and the contrasting textures are great and attractive qualities. The way you've played with the light is marvellous, the colours are beautiful and the neverending transfer from cool to warm tones is absolutely fascinating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
Cricri (109661) 2013-05-19 10:04
C'est toujours des images hors du commun soit par sa composition , ces couleurs ou les deux a la fois, comme l'instant choisi aussi donne une atmosphère des plus agréable, magnifique
krzychu30 (15510) 2013-05-19 10:50
it´s exactly like you wrote,sometimes "less is more".I think simplicity is the best way to show how beautiful in its form and message the nature can be.
And concerning this picture,I´m delighted not only by these delightful,warm colors.Even more I like the foreground with so beautifully captured stones.
Have a nice evening

Good text ...
Nice view ...
A good time recording, contrast, perspective, beautiful colors.
Good composition, nice place and time indicated.
Have a great day, all the best in the new week that started.
jcpix (13724) 2013-05-20 18:11
This actually works great, the concept of "less is more" plays right into the effectiveness of this particular shot! There's still plenty of interest in the rocks, the texture and patterns they provide is complimentary to not only the viewpoint, but also to the shape created with this wide view...almost like a spearhead. Another intriguing facet is that there appears to be a slight arc in the formation, which gives a fun twist to the perspective. It goes without saying, the colors and tones are undeniably your hallmark. A minimal and beautiful moment put together. Thanks for providing us with another soothing image. Have a great day ahead.
npecanhuk (68150) 2013-05-20 20:35
Hi! Very beautiful indeed! I really love those colors, that light and that minimalist composition! Cheers, Neyvan

Dag dear Robert
Wow what a photo. Your title says it all. There is so much beauty in the simplicity of this photo and indeed in the simplicity of life. I love the pastel tones and the textures created by the foreground rocks. The depth is so good, the photo seems to go on forever. What a marvellous, tranquil feeling this photo gives me. Thanks for sharing it.
kasianowak (7315) 2013-05-22 9:58
As always, excellent idea for a foreground. Lovely colours and blurred water.

La réussite est totale.
Très bonne journée.
adidas5nb (5671) 2013-05-29 3:49
yes it is simple...and it is so very BEAUTIFUL!!!
Waylim (25368) 2013-05-30 18:17
So simple so pure and so natural. Beautiful image comprise of mostly natural element. Love the A shape or upside down V that lead our vision in toward the horizon where the water meet the sky. The color are soft and subtle but rich in tone. Another master piece in your gallery.
adramad (39452) 2013-05-31 9:57
I resume my activity in TE, after two weeks of travel in Cordoba, Avila and Barcelona, where I enjoyed the company of my friends Josepmarin and Pili, wonderful hosts.
Sensational composition with a delicious range of colors, I like the perspective of this pavement disappears at sea and gives a great perspective, a simple, but relaxing and watched with delight.
Very good management of both the light and the good sharpness.
Enjoy a great weekend.
macjake (58862) 2013-05-31 18:11
what can I say my friend! another stunning shot in your gallery.
excellent depth, perspective, colors, atmosphere, sharpness, clarity...can I even find 1 thing to change or complain about...no!
the lighting in the lower fg is spot on! I'm impressed again.
enjoy your weekend
bayno (18344) 2013-06-04 4:26
simply and beautiful true ;) wonderful tones, perfect framing and exposure, i like also the texture of the rocks...good POV too....excellent my friend!!!!
abmdsudi (44964) 2013-06-05 22:32
Two areas I love most, the textured triangular foreground serves as a strong anchor and the gorgeous warm colours of the sky near the horizon which holds the focus of interest. A beautiful painterly feel shot, the tones are delicate and very pretty which works so well with the silky motion effect. Delightful shot indeed, Congrats. TFS.
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4798) 2013-06-11 11:58
It is so nice to seeing again your photos. Calming, relaxing and very pleasant to the eyes. I just love the colors in here! There's really something to it that makes me comment and just admire your shots. Beautiful and extraordinary as always.

kordinator (19598) 2013-07-08 4:56
This landscape has such beautiful soft light and well-saturated colors.
Fantastic framing and the sharpness is impressive.
I really like the differing textures and tones, excellent shooting.

Fantastic image ... How do you do it???

Well done dear friend its a huge credit to you.
korbee (6617) 2013-08-18 12:49
Ik en blij met deze prachtige subtiele foto,mooi die glinsterende stenen in het avondlicht en eht zachte bewegende water.
Als ik eerlijk moet zijn,dit soort fotoos zijn zeer zeker nodig op TE,want het niveau op dit moment is niet meer wat het geweest is,echte uitspringers zoals hier zijn steeds schaarser gezaaid.
Ik wens je een fijne avond en ik hoop dat het met de kleine goed gaat.
Groeten uit Hillegom..
