That's a stunner Tim, such beautiful scenery it takes the breath away and you have captured it superbly well. The K-3 lends 'something extra' to landscapes IMO and this image illustrates that.

The image Reaches out and away like the American Artist Wayne Thiebaud. You used the image as a beach canvas he would be proud to produce. Like his,Museum quality. Far reaching. thanks tg

Really impressive shot... Great s curve beach joining foreground rocks with background mountains... Vnice foreground detail (yellow flowers vs black sand), and strong strong black and white lines... Really well put together...

Best

Stunning composition, from the rocks and flowers in the foreground along the volcanic shoreline to the mountains, love every inch of it

Spectacular shot! Love the sight of white surf on black sand (reminds me of Lanzarote, but on an epic scale!)
