Shoreline cottage

Posted by

Clearly, the building on the edge is too bight and luxurious to carry the title "cottage." It is probably a resort or condo building. i worked a while on this composition. to the left of the gray building was a squat white shack and then a larger white building that I wanted to exclude , yet there was more shoreline I wanted to include. So I settled on this version.

SONY SLT-A77V 1/2000 second F/8.0 ISO 800 150 mm (35mm equiv.)

Great villa. I believe that on windy days and nights the sound of the wind is heard quite well.

I think your hard work paid off... I'd rather see more water than buildings any day. And the sky is terrific!
