This is another shot taken in Dorset. This is taken in the perfect horseshoe shaped bay of Lulworth Cove. I sat on the rocks as the sun went down. I was suprised how just a few seconds between shots could change the whole look of the place. I took this shot at the moment when the rays of the sun fell on the rocks. I have posted this shot on TrekNature taken a few mins later when the light was in the water and sky.

Taken again on my new Sigma 10-20mm lens, using an ND Grad filter, my Velbon Sherpa Tripod and using a cable release. Shutter Speed 0.3 sec, aperture F22, ISO 100

This has a very nice perspective, the rocks leading the eyes far into the ocean. I like the colors as well. You have captured a delightful moment.

Great POV and colours

Hi Karan: Wow..... how do you get all these wonderful photos? I love the golden hues of the low sun and the POV which was probably risky to get.... very impressive gallery......... thanks Roman:0)

Hi Karan,
I love how the sunlight plays with the green on the rocks. I wouldn't have known that the shot could be improved, except for the link to your TN shot. It looked like a perfect day for shooting.

Hi Karan

I like the ambience of the light, & the low shooting angle. Good sharpness & pov. Tfs!

Hello Karan.
Very beautiful light and colur. Great POV and composition. You captured this amazing place beautifully.
Best regards, Steve.

Hi Karan,
What a difference light can make to this scenery. The mood in both photos is so different. I am also surprised that both photos were taken within a few seconds. I would have expect that it was at least an hour. I have to say that I prefer the TN version for its colors. I think that if you add a bit more contrast to this photo, the colors might come out beter.

great light, good low POV, i like it ;)

Excellent depth and beautiful landscape.
