Gulf of Messinia

By ardbeg77  
Not my usual fare.....but we can all fall for the cliched crepuscular rays once in a while Smile

This is the sun breaking thorough the clouds after a late afternoon storm of the Gulf of Messinia, Peloponnese peninsula, Greece. That's Stoupa in the foreground, looking over to Olos Likodimo (mountain) on the far side.

Comments of all varieties welcome.

Thanks for looking!

A beautiful sunset made even better with the sun rays coming through the clouds. Great soft tones but I might have been tempted to make it a letter box format by trimming off some of the dark base. This would concentrate more interest on the sunset.

Thanks Ian, Barry.

Thanks for the suggestion Ian - always appreciate your effort to add a detailed comment - and I do agree with you. It's a good idea and I'll give it a go. I did think about a corp, but felt there was just enough detail in the foreground town to keep it interesting, but always very happy to take other's thoughts on board.

Me neither John....although the Clifton Flyover comes close....Smile

This was the view form our holiday pace, and it was amazing how the sky, sea texture, light was subtly different every time you breathed it in. I honestly believed I would never tire of it.

Thanks for the UA - much appreciated!
