Is the back a little more like a hotel, or do you get to sleep au nature?
Nigel Clack: Nope this is itgrin

That is beautiful. The dark rocks against the misty water is sweet.

I like the shiny black rocks - very nice
Well done, Nigel! Take a look at this with the sky cropped don't lose a thing, IMO, and the rock/water interaction is greatly strengthened. Cheers.
Nigel Clack: Agreed
really nice and moody . . . .

Why so blue? wink

Ok, that was awful.

Beautiful shot, Nigel.
This reminds me of a little book I used to have showing what they imagined the planets would look like before any images were obtained. This might be Neptune.
This is a fabulous image, definitely a perfect capture with a slow shutter speed. Beautiful landscape with a great foreground and stunning tones.

The long exposure time has worked wonders with the sea, Nigle. A very appealing shot with some good lighting.
Very mystical Nigel.

Wonderfully atmospheric shot, Nigel. If you've toned it then it's a great job; if not, then the light is just wonderful.

Looks like your lens has got some bad distortion though, unless there's a whirlpool somewhere out there in the sea?
Very mystical feel. Lovely...
Nigel Clack: Thanks Mark
