Su,Both are just magnificant shots,the colours of the coastal rock formations and heath type vegetation are just wonderful.(I can appreciate their beauty and colour living on a coastal city myself). Not much in it ,but I just lean more to this one with the birds...exciting and wonderful shots both though. #556801

Bonsoir Dominique, et voilà, je sais que vous comprenez "obrigado", il se suivait "est-ce au Portugal que vous avez apris à parler si bien le portugais"!! c´était juste pour vous taquiner (c´est le bon mot?)!
Vos commentaires sont toujours très appréciés, autant les très positifs que les autres, ils me donnent une opinion sincère sur la qualitè de mon travail.

Gorgeous, Su! This is an amazing image! I just love the multitude of vibrant colors! You've done a beautiful job with this image! #558635

Gary H. Minish 5/25/2004 12:28:02 AM

WOW!! Gorgeous scene with amazing colors! The birds are a definite bonus and make the difference between this one and your last post. This is my favorite and possibly my all-time favorite of your landscapes :-) I hope you are willing to share the secret of the strong foreground light while shooting into the sun. Was it fill flash? You are certainly taking control of the light with that camera of yours! I hope you are very proud of this photo :-)Congratulations from Alaska. #558728

Susana Matos 5/25/2004 1:10:01 AM

Kati, THANK YOU so much! I appreciate indeed! Paula, hello! Thank you too, I like so much to read from you!
Gary, a nice surprise in the morning! Well, this is by the end of day and I used a Cokin orange degradé filter together with a grey degradé, and I am not sure, but I think for this one I still had my polarizer on. So, this way, it darkened enough of the sun and sky to balance the light with the land.
This is a small but enjoyable piece of land in the coast side where I found all these wildflowers with superb colors that won't now last much longer with the summer hot days that are arriving. So with a strong colored sky and a gorgeous piece of natural land I managed this attractive photo. But being there by the end of day was even nicer ... as the sun went down, the horizontal light gave these flowers a soft and warm lighting, it was beautiful!!! Cheers from Portugal, Su #558748

Me too would love to fly over these beauties and then come back home, sit by the fireplace, drink a tea and think how life can be sooooo simple and make us happy!
