Hello everyone,
yet another view of the sea.....
I never get tired of seeing the sea,and living on an island as we do in the U.K. we are never too far away from it.
It has so many moods, colours,and textures.

This is taken from the coastal path close to the Cornish village of Zennor.Zennor is on the northern coast of Cornwall.You can park your car in the car park in the village, then walk about three quarters of a mile out towards the sea, where you meet the coastal path which goes east or west from that point.
This view is looking east.

We had started the day with grey clouds but as the day progressed the weather improved, and finally, the sun came out.

Thanks for looking,have a great day.

Hi Jean!! Nice work on this one! Love the straight horizon! Nice view! Your water is super sharp, with lots of details!

Hello Jean,

This is a very strong composition - the large bulk of the rock at the left anchors the FG of the image, and the patch of warm coloured bracken balances the right side.

The wavy shoreline at the right leads us neatly to the horizon and a fine sky.

The two or three rocky outcrops in the water with the sea breaking on them are a good feature in the MG.

Good textures on the lichen on the big rock, and soft colours throughout.

I thought I might try a gentle WS for your consideration.

Kind regards,

merhaba dear Jean...
verynice shot and pov..superb colors and detail...selamlar

Hi Jean, like you, I never tire of sea views, this is a lovely shot of the Cornish coast, it must have been a nice walk. Unfortunately, although I live on the tiny island of Bahrain our sea views are limited as there are not many public beaches and no cliffs at all!
Best regards, Les

Hi Jean
A very good composition of earth sea and sky. Everything needed to make a great shot.
With me its the sound, the sea air, and the changing moods that draw me to the sea.

Nice composition, using the rock to the left as a natural half frame. Details are good and colours rich and not over saturated. A nice sea view.
Thanks for sharing

Beautiful view and well done on the composition. The aperture used was f/4, it is a shallow depth of field, resulting in a not so sharp distance, there is no need to sharpen the image, it is fine as it is. Maybe a slight increase in hue/saturation of +8
If you wanted the scene to be all sharp, f/16 would be the chosen aperture and focusing a 1/3rd of the way into the scenery and holding the focus, recompose while holding the focus, capture the scene.

Last time I was in the U.k. we almost got to visit Cornwall, unfortunately, a car accident spoiled that trip.
One day, when I win the lottery, I'll be sure to get there.
I'm 45, last time in the U.K. I was 21.
