The clouds in the sky also wonderful.

Hello Linas,

Your wonderful landscape capture includes amazing colors and contrasts that I liked a lot. Excellent idea reserving more space for fantastically colored sea while yellow sand and green vegetations creating eye catcher contrasts. Perfect clarity and sharpness in natural colors, congratulations. Have a nice weekend.

Best Regards,

Hi Linas. What a majestic sweep of blue water. Lovely hues. Excellent POV with the hint of sky and the little clouds floating above the white dunes. Superb light overall. Regards. Klaudio.

A magnificent shot Linas,
I haven't been up that far but after seeing this photo I wish I had - a dramatic shot with great colour. The other photo which I hadn't looked at previously is great too.

Hi, Linas.
Pretty hard to tell what I like better between this post and the other version, they are different yet both outstanding. Definitely an amazing landscape, blessed with wonderful colors. Great framing, great presentation, TFS!
Have a good day, I'll see you around.

Very nice shot

Hi Linas --

Amazing landscape and more amazingly two shots exhibit two entire different combinations of colours. When I saw this one I thought with more sky and less sea and ground will not be as great as this one. I was wrong. The colours you managed in both of them are just fabulous.

Thanks a lot for sharing this. Straight into my favourites.
