This is another one I'm not entirely sure about...

We had great light on the causeway but the Mount itself was in shade, which is why I'm not so sure about it. Anyway, it's over to you lot.

Julian, you had some lovely light it has a clarity and pureness to it with some nice warmth in the f/g causeway and rocks. The sky and comp are great yes it would of been the icing on the cake to have the mount illuminated but that dos n't distract from a really good landscape image

great Julian I love the format ( but then thats what it is ) the lights great on the causeway as you say and the sky is fabulous with terrific blues to the scene, the mount itself, well you can't have it always all the time Smile

It is the sky that adds a sence of Drama to this image. I quite like it the way it is.

Cheers

Strong silhouette of the island leaves you in no doubt as to where this is. Beautiful skyscape and warm light on the slipway Julian. Ron.

That coral grad has added a lovely warmth to this which I think makes a nice contrast between the causeway and the mystery of the half seen Mount in the background. Personally I don't think everything always has to be well lit in a photograph - the fact that something isn't can add to the story and the mood, and the colour in the fg is an enticement to lead the viewer into the picture and across to the Mount.

You may or may not have intended that! But that's the effect for me at any rate.

Cool one, Joolz.
