Opened the large variant, feelt the breeze and cold spray of the mist on my face. Looks like a nice day was on its way!
Superb simple composition, with great scale and atmosphere.

A very effective image with an excellent sense of scale. Nice job with keeping the surface of the water so perfectly flat and straight. Well done, Dougie.

Marvelous lens Tommy, great to hand hold too, nicely weighted with the camera.
