Thought that I might mention that "most" of the golden color on the bluff yesterday was the color of the soil not the light. You don't see nearly the same golden hue on the driftwood.

When you wonder what is coming, tell yourself the best is coming, the
very best life and love have to offer, the best God and His universe
have to send. Then open your hands to receive it. Claim it, and it is

Mathilde from France

I love these shades indefinable and very attractive! mysterious atmosphere and sweet! I am surprised with my D700, I lack definition in the distance, when I worked at 35 mm for example, I do not know what you think!

21 Mar 2009 7:43am

@Mathilde: I am totally delighted with my D700.

Marie LC from Voiron, France

Des couleurs fabuleuses, un cadrage parfait, une très belle image sur laquelle je vote 5 *****

Warm hints and hues, a peaceful light and setting as well. A perfect place for mind renewal.

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

The golden glow is fantastic; I'm guessing this is all natural, just as yesterday's was.

21 Mar 2009 10:01am

@Judy: Yes.

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Nice composition. Have you notice that there are 3 long similar triangles? water on the sand, rocks behind and clouds on the right. and may be the stones in the foreground? I would have clone the stone which is nearly in the middle (the lowest one)

21 Mar 2009 12:16pm

@akarui: Thanks, I didn't think of it.

Alivia from Saint-Etienne, France

Gold, allt this gold is fabulous .. I cannot understand how you get to capture a similar color. Your landscape is another world where the supernatural sun gives this beautiful light. The Pardis perhaps has this particular brightness!. I give you 5 stars, this fabulous image enjoys me.

21 Mar 2009 12:20pm

@Alivia: Thank you, Dane.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Magnificent! I can only imagine standing there.

Just drop me off Jack, and I'll be fine on these golden sands. Nobody else but I and my thoughts. No distractions from the frenetic pace of daily life. Let me bathe my heart and soul in the beauty of this scene

Oh...Just outstandingly lovely!
The quote today is perfect. It may be a photographers' mantra...
Thank you for using that quote today, It helps me to put things in perspective...sometimes I get so upset with myself when I cannot capture the beauty I see with my camera-that I forget to just enjoy it. That really is the point, after all.

21 Mar 2009 2:26pm

@Tracy: Thanks, Tracy. It's amazing the counterproductive behavior in which we engage. To a great degree, I delight in shooting no matter how it turns out; I always have way more stuff than I can use.

Chris Parr from Jefferson City, United States

Stunning light in both shots Jack. Truly magical.

Tnis is a remarkable picture of the coast. Love all those rocks and sand. The light, of course, transforms it all with a spectacular colorcast. That is exciting light! Very well done.
