Hi Tony.
What an attractive place and unusual relief of the seashore. Brilliant selection of the POV and nice composition of the image. Ocean surface and cloudy sky, sand and rocks as well as the vegetation are reproduced by the best way with great details and lovely colours. Bravo and kind regards.

Hello Tony,
From one old TN friend to another! Nice dedication and great capture of a part of your varied coastline taken with excellent sharpness and lighting. The composition is as usual for you superb.
TFS this lovely landscape view,
All the best,

merhaba Tony,
where were you my dear friend, nice to see you came back. welcome again.
I missed your seascape shots. This is one them and belongs to very beautiful place. Great coloration with green and blue. Nicely composed. Thanks for sharing. See you with new posts.
have a nice week.

Hello Tony
I am so glad to see a posting from you. Where have you been? I even wanted to send you an e-mail but you do not have that option switched on. I missed your beautiful landscapes and my eyes were waiting eagerly to feast on one of yours on the gallery. Your "simple” landscape is a dreamscape to look at and admire for its beauty. The colours of all aspects of this scenery are sheer magic, and the atmosphere is that of stillness and tranquillity. The wide open space and the view far away in the distance is a wonderful view. Thanks for sharing this most relaxing scene.
Best regards.

I feel like a seagull over a hill close to the ocean. What a fantastic view, Tony. Thank you so much for these seascapes, they are fantastic.

Hi Tony

Wonderful wide and high leveled landscape here!
The distance one can see from this POV is amazing and the composition you managed to create is most beautiful!
I also like the nice curves that the waves make and the tiny shadows down near the beach that create a lovely mosaic.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Tony,

Was this a farewell message? I sincerely hope not.It is so good to see one of your signature landscapes again. Absolutely beautiful with the wonderful green and brown patterns leading to the sea. A wonderful feeling of depth and space. The different blues of the sea and sky are delicious. As always, a marvelous composition.

Hi Tony,
Magnificent capture of this beautiful place.POV,sharpness,exposure and composition are excellent.
Thanks for posting.

Hello Tony,

What the matter my friend. Has NICHOLAS GLEN right that you get a little break or even a stop. You can't stop Tony or otherwise we miss you very beautiful landscapes. But we are optimistic friends and we will see what's happens. Back to your photo. Your high POV is amazing. The black sand is beautiful. Sky and sea is as always beautiful.

Thanks and see you Bob

Hello Tony,
Beautiful coastline. Splendid clear light and colours. The greens and blues are fabulous. Very sharp and a great POV and composition.

Where have you beeeeeeeeeeen????????

This is a particularly nice, evenly exposed sea scape. It has great depth of focus despite the wide aperture. I guess that is a difference in cameras. The sharpness and the good color saturation throughout makes it a fine image.

Evelynn : )

Hello Tony,

Thank you. It is good to have you back, showing the wonderful scenery of N.Z.!
The f/g corner anchors the shot high on the hill and then the prescence of the people way down the slope gives us an understanding of the scale ... which is immense!
A great birds' eye view of the topography, good composition and, as always, perfectly saturated colours.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Friend Tony,
welcome back with a beautiful landscape shot from your beutiful country. Thanks for your kind dedication too (if you accept me as an old friend:).
All the best!


I do not know of this person whom you dedicated but shall go look at the gallery and see why. You do not do this often and t take such a wonderful image and do this..it means soothing...Words from you as a seascaper artist are always an Monro!

Hi good friend Tony,
Great to see you after such a long time and you come back with a bang with this outstanding seascape. Lovely colours and details with superb lighting. Excellent POV to portray this scenic place. Very nicely composed.

Hi Tony,
Each and every photo you put on TN makes my urge to visit your part of Heaven :) Thsi time you have the coast presented with greens and blues which makes it different from other seascapes. TFS

Hi Tony!

Wonderful as always, I love those low shapes they are pretty 'moon like' or so! Very good pov indeed that gets a wide range from close to far in the composition. Good to see you post my friend, I can make a rare visit only too but I recognized your absence. TFS!

Hi my dear old Friend,
I also wasn't here on the site in the past few weeks - as I see, You also had a break. It's great both of us are back. :) This is a simple, but beautiful landscape, pleasant to my eyes. It's so good to see summer seaside images now, when it's winter here. Thanx, also for the dedication to all of us (if I'm in Your "old friends" bunch).
Best wishes from Hungary, László

Hi Tony,
your landscapes are really splendid. this soft sky with blues is pleasant indeed. The light that fall onto the beach makes it glow and lively. The overall shot is brilliant and draw attention to visit the palce.
Excellent piece of work Tony.
