Perhaps one of the strangest places to be as the sun rises. The place has an atmosphere that is difficult to convey in a photograph.

Love the detail and texture in the foreground, also the great colours in the sky and the reflection of these on the water. Great work!

I do believe that the rock formation comes from result of volcanic lava cooling quickly as it hits the sea.

I'd love to see this in person someday. And usually in shots of this place I don't see light like this. I'm not sure if they are mostly taken at sunset or what. And yes, columnar basalt is the result of rapid cooling. The crystals are aligned vertically so the vertical columns remain and they crack horizontally.

I like the foreground Keith, interesting and colourful. The silhouette outline is a little blurry on my monitor, was that intentional as a function of the aperture you chose?

I think it's from it cooling very slowly nowhere near the sea Keith... gives the crystals time to growwwwwwww.

whatever, this is a stunning image. I need to revisit mine and see wht I need to do to get anywhere near this!

If you'd HDR'd there would be no need to desaturate, however you see this, the clouds in the top right need help mate.

Take the file back to your .RAW editor and see if you can save some detail.
