I would never have put this place to America in my head. Looks more like Ireland :-) Thanks for making me a bit wiser ...

Stephen, wonderful photo and the sky is superb! Did you take that this week while we have been having the weather? This is my favorite time of year when the hills turn green with wonderful rain!

17 Feb 2009 9:09pm

@Scott Schilling: Hi Scott - thanks - and no. I've been really busy and grabbed this from the archives. It was taken this time of year - 20 February 2004. Here's the EXIF:

Canon D60 w/ Canon 16-35mm f/2.8; ISO 100 - 16mm - f/5.6 @ 1/60th sec.

Laura from Birmingham, United Kingdom

great light and composition with the foreground. Looks a lot like some coastline around Eastbourne in the UK. The light in the clouds is particularly beautiful

Liang from San Francisco, United States

this is a very nice composed photo. I like the stormy skyline here mixed with the sun setting. Just an excellent shot, wished I have time to explore the shores like this.

@Liang: Life is very short. Create time in your life! Time is a gift - money is a tool.

Spectacular shot. Close inspection reveals a lot of great detail and color. I think my favorite aspect of the shot are the orange colored clouds resting above the cliffs.

wonderful composition! i like the warm colour tones - they really shne in the clean post-rain air and you even managed to catch a glimpse of the rainbow - well done!
