Shield Reef Sunset

By DaveMead  
Hi Folks,
Thank you all for the kind comments and clicks for 'Return to Saltwick Bay', they are very much appreciated. My recent coastal shots seem to have 'struck a chord' so I shall persevere with them. This one was taken on Tuesday evening on a trip out with steviehutch to Runswick Bay. Steve kindly waited for me to get this shot despite it getting late and him having to be up for work at 4 o'clock Wednesday morning. Cheers Steve, I hope you think it was worth it. Several Curve Adjustment Layers have been used in the processing as well as a Colour Selection Layer to slightly darken the brightest part of the sky. The foreground rock is known in geologistic terms as a Shield Reef, which I will talk more about in a future upload.
I am always happy to read any and all comments, thanks for dropping by, have a smashing evening.

Hey, I was thinking of going to Runswick these last few evenings, but haven't managed to get there. This makes me wish I'd made more effort. It's lovely. A fine composition and gentle colour.

Great colours /tones and the slightly unusual take on Runswick Bay is refreshing to see. Love the sky reflections in the pools . A top class image here again Dave ....Phil
