Maybe would have liked a slightly faster shutter to sharpen up the splash....but plenty else to like in this.

This is an absolute belter Helen! The light & colour are fantastic. Perhaps a lightly faster shutter would bring more detail to the wave hit but this is a minor point to what is a cracking image.

VERY nice!! That spray in the foreground is the icing on the cake.

A summer shot from the angleof the sun, but which month was this taken?

This is a dull Jan, but then last year, we did not see the sun till the middle of March.

Thank you everyone.

@ Matt, taken early November.
Don't say that we've got wait until March. I think I'd be pulling me hair by then. LOL.

Love the rays of light coming from the sun hidden behind the clouds. You also timed this to perfection as the wave crashes into the rock, catching the moment of impact.

Exceptional timing, and the most beautiful capture of light. There's an extraordinary similarity shared by the cloud and that distant rock. (Terrific website, too.)

Thought I'd come and check you out, been a while since my last visit to your bit of Epz, nice to see your listening to all them tips I've been passing on about how to shoot landscapes, there is hope for you yet my girl! Have a good day off tomorrow. I'm not clicking the rest, you already know I like them and your not short of a click or two anyway so Tongue By the way, thats a bleeding big pebble making that water splash.

See ya H.
