Golden Cove

By rhiw_com  
Took this in November, when we had some light!!! I was taking some predawn shots at one of the many coves on Llyn.

Seconds after the sun popped up over the horizon, to my left the sunlight was shining off the cliff and rocks.

F22, 3 sec, Lens @ 100mm, ISO 100, ND grad filter.

Please view...LARGE...if you can.

Hope you like it, and many thanks for your comments on my last upload.

All the very best, Tony

This is really well done. I like the warm light hitting the far rocks, the movement in the water but most of all the amazing luminosity of the rocks in the foreground. This really is painting with light.
