I love the tiny hint of sky showing through. These clouds give a wonderful dark cast to the water.

It's a perfect place for a couple of pirate ships to come sailing around the bend ahead, flags flying, blasting their cannons. Or maybe a dragon will come soaring down through the clouds, warning you to stay away from his island. Anything could happen here!

Greetings, Ryan

Thanks, Ryan and Bruce. This is a favorite of mine.

It was a wonderfully dramatic scene, changing constantly, and I kept shooting. It was another of those times when the weather wasn't what I'd have chosen, but if I'd had what I preferred, I wouldn't have seen anything like this!

Greetings, Marilyn

wow. Really dramatic. I also love the pale light of sunshine on the hillside, forming a match to the hillsides and the slope of the cloude on the right side. Very well exposure and very well captured Marilyn :)

Thanks steandeb and Roger. Yes, it was a holiday of a lifetime, and I was very glad to be able to capture this view, one of my top favourites of the whole trip. Cheers, Marilyn

Fine picture! It looks as if you are a big traveller with all these photo's from around the world. I will have to keep coming back to keep an eye on them. Herb

Marilyn Whiteley on August 22, 2008

Thanks, Herb. We've been very fortunate to be able to travel since my husband's retirement. We're making the most of the time because you never know what the future holds! Marilyn

A spectacular photographie. The left side cloud show a resemblance with a warrior (you may read this on the axis NW - SE), where you may found his head on the NW. How do you get on with me?

Greetings from Italy.Lorenzo.

Marilyn Whiteley on March 12, 2009

Many thanks, Lorenzo. I hadn't seen the warrior but I certainly do now! Good observation!

Greetings from Canada, Marilyn
