Indeed a majestic sight... I have always felt captivated by the power of the ocean and the beauty of a dawn, a very special moment when everything seems to be more silent than usual, like anticipating the mystery of the night.
The several purple shades are amazing and so attractive, as well as the soft bright reflections of light on the wet rock surfaces.
An impressive mix of textures, showing the hardness and roughness of the rocks in contrast with the softness and silky aspect of the long exposed waters.
And then, when one thinks all on the photo has been well explored and enjoyed, a couple of dim lights show their twinkles to the right, on the mountain, making us wonder who the blessed soul(s) can be, who enjoy this and so many other - and different - dawns, day after day...
You captured "a place where Elementals could meet", so to say... energizing, full of questions, yet also relaxing and inspiring, where one could spend several hours, if not a lifetime, lost in thoughts, daydreaming, finding one´s inner self and the reasons of existence.
A brilliant capture, and a very well deserved recognition.
I love the rich violet colours throughout this photo, also how this light adds to the moody sky and the detail brought out in the rocks.
I really like how the soft mist below and the rougher bolder clouds above are so different in a sense. The water falling from the rocks in the background look like the top of a massive waterfall. As if the mist are clouds that you could fall through and never hit the ground.
The detail on the rocks are really great, they're perfectly in focus and lit in just the right way with the light falling onto them. Shadows that are cast are very dark and add to the overall mysteriousness of the scene.
The dim light works well here, especially with the slight tinges of golden light falling onto the background rocks and the hill.
This photo has a feeling about it that so many don't. The colour and lighting work perfectly to create a great mood. An awesome photo overall, nicely done!
