one more marvellous picture. I like the mood in it and the quality of light...and technically it is perfect. It reminds me of a quote from a book by Paul Theroux.

Sorry, the combination of colours looks strange to me. Otherwise a great shot.

Really nice one again, Im different and think the colours give this a different look to a seascape shot, and a good look that is, gives it a really nice dramatic feel. Nice foreground detail.
