Pure is the feel here. And the light so wonderful. Each element, Nature included, at its right place to balance the frame.

This small church has a view over the sea but is also very fragile on this rocky peak. A beautiful composition, and as always, a beautiful black and white

This is breathtaking Ian! What a great vantage point you've found and as always your masterful framing make this even more appealing! PS. Must say I love your colour version just as much!:-)

the POV is great and I like the lighting and contrast as well. What a history this mountain has, it is scary what has already happened, and may happen again.

Lovely sense of balance and simplicity, esp with contrast of the tones of the land, water and the skies. Nice composition.
