Tales From Topographic Oceans

By RobboB  
Massive thanks to Philpot, Estonian, ArtyArt, waltknox and Drummerdelight for their UAs on my last iceberg photo. So very much appreciated.

This is from the wonderful island of St Agnes, one of the Isles of Scilly. The landscape reminded me of the album artwork of the prog rock band Yes. They were painted by Roger Dean and the album I had in mind was Tales From Topographic Oceans, hence the title. It was regarded as completely self indulgent, over the top and probably was one of the catalysts for Punk but I loved it nonetheless.

Marvellous picture! A simple and beautiful scene, well captured in a long exposure and delicately rendered in light tones. The unadorned shape of the Sicilian Khatru Wink above the rocks adds a little extra pizzazz.
