Fantastic shot, David! I see Mal has some competition in the domain of moody seascapes. smile That band of bright white beginning at the rocks and then leading into the dark is very mysterious. The antler looking branches must belong to some mythic creature making it's way out of that white cauldron. Beautiful!
David from the Hebrides: Thank you, Suzanne- perhaps it is a Welsh dragon. The branches were much bigger than they appear, in fact this was a whole tree that had become wedged in the rocks!

Awesome shot. I'm jealous. I'm off to go cry myself to sleep.
David from the Hebrides: Thank you! It sounds like your leg might be making you cry too! grin
Fantastic shot David. Perfect. I could stay ther and look at it for hours...
David from the Hebrides: Thank you, Roland- I actually DID stand there for a long time- it was almost dark when I took the shot!

love the transition from sharp foreground to ethereal to the horizon that is as sharp as a pin. lovely shot david.
David from the Hebrides: Thank you, Nev. Like a sheep I have followed the digital path, but my medium format stuff is still unbeatable when it comes to sharpness- even after going through a fairly average scanner! Were we too hasty in our rush to the comfort of photoshop?! smile
Wonderful, 'malesque' (new adjective!) image! Very well processed, David.
David from the Hebrides: Thanks for the compliment Dave- I do hope Mal doesn't think I'm gatecrashing! I took this a while back near Porthcawl and just thought it would make a nice PS conversion. I've done surprisingly little to it.
You must look in tomorrow as I have put on a wacky image that needs a bit of interpretation- something I know your wacky humour could enhance! smile
DAVE ONLY ONE THING TO SAY I WISH I HADE TOOK THE SHOT.DO MORE B+w.
David from the Hebrides: Thanks for the big compliment, Michael! In my files I have about 400,000 colour negatives, slides and files and 100 B+Ws, so it's still a bit of a mystery to me!! smile

Loads of thoughts looking at this ..

It's a wonderful picture, the branches look rather like antlers and somehow make the picture look as if it's a bit spooky, graveyard-ish, could even be another planet.

I find this image very erie (eerie?). And it almost looks as if there's a giant, tarantula-like spider crawling out from under one of the rocks..... eek! Will I be able to sleep tonight?
