    There's a nice distribution of colours and textures across the shot. The blue (and white) flowers of the "dotty" foreground complement the orange of the rocks well. This looks like the kind of shot that looks like it will make a better print than screen image.

    Regards, Tony

    Beautiful, and I like this approach very much. Do you use a very slow exposure?

    I like it. What lens are you using?

    Thank you Tony. I'm hoping it does. The large prints I've had made of other pre-sunrise/post sunsets similar seem to have deep, rich colors that I like to see.

    Thank you. Usually I go with the smallest aperture and slowest shutter. When the air is dead still I figure I have nothing but time.



    Thanks. This is one of those shots where I tried to use the color as the composition. The blue heliotrope (or phacelia?) being encircled by the white pincushion and flowing to the left. Helped by the green vegetation upper-mid-shot to the rock banner, backed by sort of an ambient, subtle, sunburst in the sky. Any other time, day or conditions, this shot wouldn't be as interesting.
