awesome vista, Dave. your title reminds me to do one of two things - stop dwelling on the beauty of the present and prepare for the impending future OR enjoy the present coz it won't last long. hmm... i'll go for the latter smile
Dave Carrington: Thanks for the a philosophical rumination, Terry. It's always interesting to know what others see & feel when looking at your work!
Oh Dave, this is simply wonderful. I really like the different tones and the different horizontal lines in this "likeyed" sky !
Dave Carrington: Hi, Florence. Glad it pleases you! smile

Fantastic. The colours are stunning - it makes my panorama look a bit washed out. Did you stitch this together or is it a crop? I'm interested as I'm doing a project on panoramic photography on my college course.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Ingrid. No stitching, simply a crop!
Now that's more like it. I am sure the concept is entirely unique and uninfluenced by any one else I can think of, possibly little consolation to you but I much prefer your rendition.
The contrast between the two layers of cloud is rich and creamy.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Al. Yep, DJN beat me to it & I wasn't going to post this one, but I do like it, so I did!! smile

Very nice Dave, just have to agree with everyone, and it suits the letterbox format very well.
Dave Carrington: Glad you think so, Les!

Simply gorgeous
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Nigel!
Great colours and letterbox crop Dave. I'm not too sure about the black band at the bottom though
Dave Carrington: Know exactly what you mean about the black beach, Bill. I considered a version without it, but it seemed imbalanced in some way, so left it in!
I love this kind of photograph. This is a `one off` brief moment in time, never to be repeated in exactly the same way. Stunningly captured! (:o)
Dave Carrington: My view entirely, Ros. Glad you like it! smile
Fantastic painterly image - in fact I own a series of paintings of Northumbrain landscapes which have just this 'banded' look. Insuppose this is a 'skyscape' rather than a landscape though.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Ian. These landscapes sound good: who is the artist? I'd be interested to see these paintings...

When it can do this it's no wonder that there is a history as long as thought of worship of the sun. A beautiful,powerful and thought provoking capture Dave. Nice one.
Dave Carrington: Thank you, Ron, for your considered comments. I'm touched by the fact that it's stirred such feelings: I must be doing something right! smile
