It doesn't seem like the same place I was close to last weekend! But the wind really adds to the drama..this is much more like how I remember it all. Lovely picture.

Grouser Awesome! It seems you can touch the sea water. A texture reminiscent of lace woven by our grandmothers!. A large depth of field! A rugged coastline and fabulous! A composition for good! Do you wet the feet of sea water?

@Fonts: Not without a wet suit at this time of year :)

Marion from Cincinnati, United States

Great composition. The muted colors almost make me feel the chill spray of the water.

Wild and rugged, I'd love you to get down there and shoot this during a big storm! (Only kidding)

You've done an excellent job of capturing the wind-blown feel of the day. I especially like the mild colors and that frothy sea!

The soft colors make a striking contrast with the vigor of the sea . . one of those shots that starts telling a story.

i love the red rocks. i was told once that the red color in rocks was iron, but i don't believe that. but either way, red makes a strong, spectacular photo against the gray-white ocean. it's a wonderful shot, grouser.
