  3. I love it. I really like the clarity of the rocks against the blurred movement of the clouds. I really must try some more long exposures.

    An amazing rock and the blurred sky sets it off, prehistoric overtones I think :)

    • Thank you Andy! :-)

      March 1, 2014 at 7:17 pm

  25. Lovely! The colours work really well together and the shapes, along with that sky, makes the whole thing look like the land that time forgot.

    March 1, 2014 at 6:12 pm

    • Thank you Noeline. It certainly seems like a prehistoric place. If it was a movie those pebbles would be hatching behind the backs of the hero and sidekick. ;-)

      March 1, 2014 at 7:18 pm

  26. Well done.Fascinating!

    March 1, 2014 at 8:58 pm

  34. Really amazing shot. I got the 24 70 f2,8 today. Cant wait to go out and check it out. Can I ask what filter you have used on this shot? Really one of the finest seascapes photos I have seen. Greetings from Åsmund, Norway.

    March 5, 2014 at 10:58 pm

    • Hello. :-) Thank you for the compliment. The 24-70 really is a wonderful lens and so very versatile. I think you will enjoy it very much. For this shot I used a .9 Lee ND Filter.
