Hello dear friends,
I hope you had a great Easter day!
Spring is really here with nice weather. But, as you can see, the sun will must shine strongly on my village to melt all the snow that still covers it.
The photo was taken last Saterday,Easter Eve. With this unreal light, we have here an example of what the poet was referring when he said that the sky gets marry with the sea. A moment of grace where time has stopped!

Raw photo converted in Tiff and post-processed with PS CS4.

Hi Annie,
Luckily again a "real" picture on TL :-)This is quite a special exposure, all those bright (almost OE) areas are really striking particular against the brown trees, earth and roofs. I only would have chosen for a more tighter crop to get rid of the roofs in the left and right lower corners. The brightness and clarity are fine, creating a nice view on the bay and town.

Lovely treatment on this one Annie .. I looks like a colored drawing! So beautiful. We have seen this view so many times, but it never gets old, because each one has its own merits. I love the yellow/gold/brown hues in this one, and yes ... the sea marries the sky!!
I hope your snow melts soon .. we have no more snow, but spring is taking a long time to get here.
Have a nice week Annie

Olá Annie!

Agradável composição.
O cenário é belissimo.

Bonsoir Annie

En toile de fond une scène de mariage entre le ciel et la mer. Une incroyable et étrange lumière allume cette scène signalant aux dernières nappes blanches de neige le début d'une grande aventure qui au départ ce fera par de petits murmures et un ruissellement vers le grand fleuve pour ainsi entreprendre un long périple ..... pour un jour revenir tisser à nouveau une grande et merveilleuse nappe blanche. Le village aux teintes de noisette assiste fièrement en premier plan à ce grand spectacle qu'est le printemps. Un grand merci.

Bonne semaine

Bonjour Annie,
Quelles jolies couleurs qui se marient bien avec le paysage.
Effectivement la lumière donne un magnifique effet.
Bien vu.

Bom dia dear Annie
You live in a very beautiful place that gives great compositions. Here I really like the the ocre tones of light in sea, in the houses ...a unique light...like a decision of a "peintre". There iare a curve between land and sea where I can see a beautiful golden. You touch your photos with so delicate light and mood.
Beautiful to see and wonderful place to work.
Great to see u again in a amazing photo.
Um grande abraço

Ciao Annie

Beautiful view, already spoken of how much this place
is wonderful, and sometimes comes into my mind this
landscape, it is different because it is in this place
and having to fund this beautiful ocean!
This time you had a good creativity
present this beautiful landscape in this filter.
Congratulations, enjoy your day.

On dirait vraiment une oeuvre d'art, un look sérigraphie incroyable! La composition est superbe et l'horizon à peine visible donne toute l'ambiance. Bien vu et très bien réalisé, bravo Annie!


Hello Annie, this scene looks quite unreal with the strange light, giving us colours that we are not used to seeing when we normally look at this view.
I like the poetic turn of phrase,"the sky gets married to the sea", excellent.
I imagine that you never get tired of this view?
I hope that the snow goes soon, and that you begin to feel the benefits of some spring sunshine.
Excellent work.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Annie, your excellent treatment makes this looks like a painting. Living by the sea too, I understand how different lights affect the look of the water. And I like your quote - 'the sky the sky gets marry with the sea.'
Very well done

Hello Annie,

What a splendid composition you have for us.
Greatly captured with very good framing.

The warm colors are great.
I like the sea colors going directly in the sky.
Very nice contrast with the partialy covered with snow land.
A great POV. TFS.

Have a good WE,

hello Annie,
yes, the sea and sky are as one here. This is a eautifully balanced composition with the church spire at one third.I love the golden reflections on the water. This to me is not just a landscape but a piece of fine art.

fantastique image, que les tons sont doux et pastel, quelle vue, le découpage des falaises, ces contraste, merveilleux effet et iamge.

bravo et amitié

When I saw this picture my first impression was that the light was fantastic and unreal.It seems that the whole place is suspended in space and infinity.Superb details,regards Otto.

Hi Annie!

Very interesting shot! Here I like very much softness of the sky and average tone! Good details!

dear Annie,
strange sky and sea meet to make fantastic spring stage in hazy atmosphere,
also mysterious light shows us surrealistic landscape of your land,
this brown and white tone of colors makes me feel very nostalgic ambience in far distant time,
maybe that white church is made of unmelted snow...
thank you for your wonderful shot,
