Hi Dawn,

Talk about a razor sharp photo! The colours are so vivid and those clouds have an interesting formation! The whole composition is very relaxing & beautiful!

Well seen & composed

Hi Dawn!
Very good photo!
I like the colors!
Great clouds! We dont have clouds like this in Bulgaria!

Such vivid colours you've captured. This is a visually beautiful, and technically brilliant photograph. Is that the remnant of a wave having crashed against the rock of to left in the frame? Just curious.
Excellent photo.
Cheers, Todd

Excellent shot Dawn,

Looking great, well captured with the dramatic clouds formation, (look like 3D), nice colours and compo... :) Well done my dear,

Thanks for sharing


Hi Dawn,
WOW! I am going to show up with my chair, umbrella, and well stocked cooler. That looks like a great place to spend the day. Beautiful colors and sharp detail. This has great clarity and sense of depth. A crappy grey winter but not to cold here. We are expecting another ice storm saturday. I dream of spending a winter in a place like this. BEAUTIFUL!

Dawn, lady all your nature scenes are so beautiful. Just feels like being there.

This one again, lovely colors and composition. :) Vandana

Lovely shot Dawn my friend. Excellent foreground detail and the clouds just perfect. TFS,
