90 - Peace


Canon 5DmkII, 16-35mm at 16mm, iso100, 1.5 sec at f/11.0, +CPL

Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do a particular job. It lies with each of us individually. Peace, for example, starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us. HH The Dalai Lama

Beautiful! I love those towering clouds. Your red channel is blown to hell, but that's par for the course with digital :-) It's just about impossible to capture the intense reds and oranges of sunsets/rises with digital without color-blow-out.

Anyway, I really like the sailboat sitting still in the mirror-like water. It gives the scene scale and also a human element so it's easier for the viewer to imagine actually being there and feeling the serenity and peace that such a scene brings.
