A touch of Mystique

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The mauve coloured hue is enhanced in the cameras' versatile white balance setting. This feature gives lots of exciting possibilities and I have used it to good effect in my moonlight photos

To my shame, I note the time lapse since my last response and can only offer my sincere apologies, there were extenuating and unavoidable circumstances

It's been such a pleasure to receive so much positive feedback guys without which there would be little point in Panoramio. With this in the uppermost of my mind, I know how much it matters to receive comments. I try to visit all those who took the trouble to review my photos. If I missed you out, don't worry, it's only a matter of time.

Sincere regards to you all!

Beautiful serene scene, the colours are so easy on the eye..... looks like a scene from a myth and magic story. Love it. Nikonwoman

NikonWoman~~~~Greetings and thank you! It was my intention to capture, yet again, another North Sea sun-rise from this vantage point..Having done this before on numerous occasions I felt it was time for a change. The Pentax K7 has a very good range of white balance settings which takes only a few seconds to adjust. This particular effect seemed to suit those light conditions and I was happy with the result..In reality the sunrise proved to be quite disappointing which made this choice of W.B all the more pleasing!

Thank you for your friendly visit!
