Super capture!

I was there in 1993, in similar weather and having a clear view like that as well, but I didn't have a camera...Thanks for sharing this excellent photo of yours!
Cheers,
Eric

Re: Super capture!

Actually I'm not really sure that this is a realistic view. I combined 4 photos, two upright ones to the right, two horizontal ones to the left. But the panoramaa fitted immediately ...

Nice photo!

It really looks like a ship coming towards you from this angle.

Re: Nice photo!

Yes, I also thought so. It is a very battered ship, though:

Wonderful.

As is so often the case with your images, wonderful photograph of a remarkable area.

Re: Wonderful.

Thanks Ken - but I must contradict: I only occasionally have the good luck to get a more than average photo. These last two years I was not very lucky - and then two weeks ago I shoot two good ones within an hour...

Re: classics!

Yes, Eric had told me that you had been in the Pyrenees. We had two weeks of perfect weather. Couldn't have been better. The Brèche de Roland day was the worst of them.
