By BertC  
A frame similar to one of my previous uploads; captured off the picturesque area known as the Dwejra.

It had just rained, and I had waited for quite a while for a beam of sunlight to creep out (from behind me) between the heavy clouds in order to illuminate the pathway in 'Shekinah' fashion (ie. as in an apparition)

Shot very late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Wish you all a splendid weekend !!

Exposure :- 1/3s - @F13 + ND Grad.
ISO 100 - Raw

Bert, that's simplistically beautiful! That soft light is amazing, and gives the picture an almost 'old masters' look - not that I am suggesting you...... David
