This is a dramatic shot! It looks so beautiful.
It's really full of dramatic elements, Yan! And looks like a picture from fantastic land!
Yours sincerely, Eva
Excellent shot! Greetings, Liviu.
The SE swell was rolling into these cliffs, and as each wave crashed against the cliff, the collision sent a huge wall of water up the cliff as high as 15-20m, then the rebound would almost extinguish the next wave. The water beneath the cliffs churned like a huge toilet bowl! What is captured here is the rebound collapse of the water.
It was dramatic, RAW, and beautiful, and the wind was close to gale force...one fought to move forward into the wind and then turned and ran away with out trying.
There were good tectonic, oceanographic and meteorological reasons for this all happening.
Lovely to receive your comment, Pali.
Thankyou Eva for your special response. What I have written to Palmina above, is a helpful response to your recognition of the dramatic and fantastic.
And Liviu, I am glad you also enjoy the images that I especially enjoy, too. Your artistic skill makes your encouragement so special. Thank you.
You've captured this lush beautiful place with a great composition Ian. It certainly looks like the forces of nature were conspiring against you. :) Being a detail guy I particularly like the moss sporadically growing on the tree. Really gives that tropical feel to the capture.
All the best, Tom
Again I appreciate your affirmation and interest, Tom. The lichen on the trees at the edge of the forest behind me covered the trunks completely on the windward side. But here the salt spray inhibits some growth.
The sea was crashing and boiling. As an observant viewer you will have also seen that there is quite a lot of water on the lens for it was raining and blowing at gale force at the time. I loved the privilege of being there in raw nature.
wunderschönes bild, like.
Thank you bayernengel. This coast displays the awesome power of the ocean.
