Hello friends,
I had posted one "Sand pattern" before with the small rock in Karekare beach, this is a closer distance towards the small rock with a sky reflection!
Sharing with you and thank you for viewing!

Great use of the reflection here Tony, the rock is perfectly placed and creates a massive feeling of space. Great idea and well seen.

Hello Tony
The sky is in the foreground as well as where it should be seperated by a small strip of sea and the rock...perfect composition! Great work
All the Best

Hi Tony, fascinating sea landscape with splendid reflection, wonderful colors, beautiful composition with great sky, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Tony,

You can see at this photo that the winter is almost arriving. It's feels a bit...Brrrrrr (cold) A great seascape and a nice refection of the clouds in the water on the beach. Good composition,POV, DOF and BG. Regards and TFS Bob

Hi Tony,

Another beautiful seascape with the most wonderful reflections. I love the water with the waves and the rock against the cloudy sky.

Hi Tony

This is a lovely seascape shot!
I really love the composition that you managed to create here with that rock carefully placed at the left third of the frame.
The clouds look great in the sky, but it's thir reflection that creates a superb pattern on the wet sand in the lower part of the picture that drags even more attention.
Wonderful work!

Bravo and TFS

Una bella panorámica.
Parece una aleta de tiburón...
Perfecto encuadre y buena definición.
Saludos, JL.

Hi Tony
Another beautiful seascape with great reflections in the water. Very good color and sharpness. Keep up the great work!

NIce composition Tony.
Even the blue of the sky is visible in the reflection.
Looks like a good place for skimboard again ;)

This is a wonderful ocean water shot and reflection. Truly it makes me wish I were back on the Pacific Coast. Only if G-D wills it I suppose. At least I have memories through you perfect and most worth work in imaging.

Hi Tony

A very skillful shot. You have claerly thought out the balance in this shot, using the reflected blue sky to balance the off-centre stack on the horizon. Good exposure and detail - it would have been very easy to get these wrong!


hello gracious,
what a view, another fine seascape form you, well composed shot, nice pov, the reflections add to the beauty of the shot,
well done,
tfs & regards

without that rock this would rate a bit less
but with it its really an eye catcher
reflections work well as well as they dont dominate
some reflection shots are too mirror image like

Hi Tony,
What a nice, plain and elegant composition... Well done and TFS
Have a nice week,

Hello Tony,
This fine composition really stands out!
Simplicity rules, and that single cliff is a great eye-catcher...
The sea is well captured, fine details and attractive colours and the blue sky reflects nicely!
Pablo -

Great sky reflection in the water but I particularly love the lonely rock in the distance, breaking the horizon and dividing the photo quite well! Wonderful!

The depth of colour in the reflection is really fabulous!
And I love that one small lone rock island out there.
Outstanding composition, colours and details

Hi Tony,
Wonderfully dramatic seascape.
Great reflections on the wet sand.

Hi Ho!
It's the kind of picture that embarasses me. On one hand, it's just a wonderful landscape with a great composition and rich details. The blue reflection leads us to the silver diagonal of the wave that points at the rock. Wonderful. On the other hand, there is that dark blue point in the sky which could come from dust on the sensor or on the lens. I also regret that some parts of the bright tones in the clouds are burnt.

Kind regards

Hello Tony a fine sharp landscape with great sharp detail good attention to composition here well taken tfs rgds Necip.

Hi Tony,
Did you use the wide angle conversion lens here? Its a beautiful capture with nice wide angle composition and nice colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Ho excellent shot and lovely details. I like the sky color very much. Ganesh

Hi Tony,
back to your wonderful seascapes again? You do show us some awesome sights from your wonderful country. I like the simplicity of this photo a lot. It has a sence of space and tranquility to it. The dark reflection in the wet sand is very beautiful and the position of the rock is perfect. A slight OE sky might be there and a strange spot is visable, but looking past it makes the photo stunning.

Hi Tony, dear friend,
a nice landscape photo of very nice place with great reflection. Seashore looks like a mirror. Great focus and details. composition, light very nice. Thanks
best wishes from Turkiye.

Hello Tony

I love the composition,like a huge shark on the horizon.The colours are deep and well saturated.The focus is sharp with wonderful details.The POV and DOF are excellent.Great job.TFS


A shimmering bit of finery here, Tony. I like the levels you have here -- the sky, the rock (well-placed, BTW) and the surf, and especially the reflection of the sky in the water. Aptly titled; nice sense of symmetry; good color and sharpness.

Hello Tony,
This one caught my eye, just for the reflections it shows. Great composition and the contrast between the calm water and the BG waves make me feel as if I were there.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Tony, very good landscape shot again, very good rule of thirds composition with great reflections and sharpness. Well done, thanks !


Hi Ho,
It seems like shark!!!
Excellent details and fantastic reflect on water (sand). Beautiful colours too.
Great job!


Para mí es una de tus mejores tomas y con las características de tu particular estilo bien marcadas. Planos amplios con buena luz y elegantes reflejos. Fantástica !!

Hi Tony,
this is what a photo should be-simple, direct and artful all at the same time.I like the colour and details in this shot.The refection of the blue part of the sky is like a path to walk on that points the way to that distant rock.Thanks for yet another great reason for people to go to New Zealand and take in the sights.
