[Re-upload] I visited Bantham beach to fulfil an assignment set by my photoclub. This was one I entered.

I really liked the quality of the light on the rocks, golden in the last rays of evening light and a cold blue where the dying embers of the sun no longer reach.

A wonderful shot! Beautiful contrast in light, the hills on the horizon almost appear to hang in mid-air :-)

Nice! There is a certain likeness to this one of mine.

On pourrait imaginer une mer de nuages d'où émergent des sommets de montagnes! Tres belle galerie! Amitiés de France - Claudius
