Out of the Blue ~~~~~This is Saltwick Bay

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

An early morning walk along these shores is so exhilarating.

The ozone rich sea air is sooo good to breath, the sound of the sea is music to my ears and to witness the early morning sunlight is one of my greatest pleasures..

The 3 thirds rule for landscapes is not applicable at all times..but I try to find a balance between sea and sky, so this shot optimises the scene in capturing the features on the beach, the contrasting green colours on the cliffs and the transition of sunrise across the clouds into the deep blue sky. It's a high resolution image, best seen at high zoom factor. HDR is not applied.

THIS PHOTO was taken from the same location about one hour earlier!
