  5. Very nice. I especially like the last one.

    I’ve just purchased an X100s and I find that the electronic viewfinder is so good in low light plus the absence of a low-pass filter that I can compose, focus and even shoot hand held (at 6400ISO) with an R72 filter.

    Good weekend, Nigel, these are amazing! I find it interesting in the second photo, the rock closest to the water on the left (partially in the water)… the cast shadow on the water is not as obvious as on the sand… I’d think the water would be a little darker there…there is so much I need to learn about light and shadow… amazing photos, thank you

    • Hello Scott,

      You notice a lot Scott, that’s probably from your painting.

      I Looked at the image again last night when I first read your comments.

      I think what it is, is that the sand is solid but the water is able to defuse the light with-in itself so that the light from the sun is going through the water in all directions and into darker areas.

      I also think that the light reflecting off the rocks all around is able to lighten the water more than the sand, for the same reasons.

      Great comment Scott, thank you 🙂

  7. Amazing images as always! I especially love the sun photo with its sun rays, golden hues and shadows, as well as the moon photo with it’s mysterious, magical mood.

  8. You have a way of bringing landscape to life. Everything is sharp and clear. There is not one part of the photo that looks neglected. There are so many stories that I envision every time I stop by….
