After shooting an unusually good sunrise, I noticed these striated formations in the cloud deck, so I ran quite a way down the beach until I found a spot where the sandstone formations lined up with the clouds. Even the light on the water cooperated as though the sand on the beach is pointing right at it! Then I waited for a wave to complement the scene, and some foam to appear behind the ledge on the right so it would stand out better against the background water.

There is a surfer in that curl by the way!

I've been away for a couple of weeks so it is time to catch up once again. Is anything interesting happening in EPZland?

Yes, Phil and Paul, I usually like more dramatic waves but the structure drew me in once I found the right spot. I do have a more dramatic one taken just to the left and close to the water with a big wave and surge. Perhaps next time.

LOL - Knitting Janet? Hmm, that really doesn't evoke images of 'dangerman' , now does it??

Hi Patrick, hope all ok with the finger now, if you can take pics like this then all seems ok? Just love the echoing of the rocks in the sky, an amazing capture. Although I think a close up of few small pebbles placed strategically on that large rock could have produced another shot ROTFL, would you like me to post you some!!

LOL Mari, don't bother, I'll just cut and paste 'em in from one one of your shots! This was taken before the finger but it's doing better now. I'll have another round next month though. It still needs work.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look!

I'm not sure Dave. It might have to do with what I'm going to mention right below.

Martin, yes that is how I do it. I sharpen each area separately at various radii and strengths leaving the sky pretty much alone. Then I sharpen all the land at 0.2 pixels at a high strength. I leave dark areas alone so as not to increase noise.

I like the rock layers too. This is a great place with lots of possibilities.

LOL Thomas, but how do you really feel? Don't hide it now!

Yes John, I do usually add 4%-8% saturation to the raw file sometimes but that brings it back from being too flat to a more natural state. Though I just did one where I had to desaturate because the sky had a lot of red in it.

It's not really my favourite from your photos Patrick. Technically it all looks impressive, but the scene just can't captivate me (me not being a huge fan of landscape photography obviously doesn't help). but for me this one is just too much just sandstone and sky (good title though lol). Looking forward to the next one though Smile
