Oh, my god. This really needs very little description! It's a wonderful shot and location. Does your sea stay this stormy much of the winter?

An astounding shot. Beautifully composed and captured.

Now that would have been a slippery place - had it been taken around here these days.

Luis Gomez said...

This is such a wonderful place!

Serendipity said...

Fabulous!

Jacob said...

I think Trillian is giving you a run for your money, VP.

Trillian, you take a back seat to no one when it comes to photography...I think you've got a "natural" eye and this shot proves it. Perfection!

This is a fabulous photo!

Thérèse said...

It's wonderful!
What's the effect of salt on the marble in the long run. Or perhaps it's not marble... :)

awarewriter said...

Outstanding. Your timing is superb. Bet this one would be great in B&W.

Leif Hagen said...

Just don't get toooo close to the railing or we'll never see you again!

Ebie said...

Wow! What a great bounce of the waves! Great photo!

Hilda said...

Awesome, Trillian! Even the 'horizon' looks higher than the balustrade!

James said...

This is a really cool shot. I think the black and white squares really add a nice quality to the picture.

This is wonderful, very surreal. I also love your post the day after weekend reflections. The turrets...but the sky is so ominous and beautiful. Thank you.

VP said...

The thing I like more in this picture is the blue of the sky reflected in the wet tiles. Brava Trillian!

Very nice compo , feeling the strength of the waves ,the movement compared with the quietnesss of the person looking at them , nice contrast , the blue reflection adds to the beauty of the scene :)

Andreea said...

Great shot! I like them all - the reflection in the tiled terrazza, the wave frozen in motion, the blue sky and the enduring silhouette. Beautifully composed.

Wolynski said...

That promenade is fantastic with the B&W tiles and beautiful railing -love the frozen wave. That person isn't even running away.
