The Atlantic Mood

Posted by Rick (Toronto, Canada) on 13 November 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Incoming stormy weather. First the wind and fog, then the rain. A section of Nova Scotia coastline near the French Shore (Acadian) region. Definitely a mood for monochrome.

Gérard from Allauch, France

This B&W mood looks very well on this hard stones

@Gérard: Thank you. It is a rugged coastline there. Very unforgiving for wayward boats.

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

A beautiful mood on wild coast ! B&W works well !

@Anna Cherer: "Wild coast" is a great way to describe it. Even the frames I shot in colour looked nearly empty of hue; the fog swallows up the colours. My thanks for your visits and comments!

omid from mashhad, Iran

such beautiful composition & atmosphere!
Amazing view!!!

13 Nov 2017 8:45am

@omid: Thanks very much. My thoughts are for the people in your country affected by the earthquake that we are hearing about in the news here.

Ana Lúcia from Leiria, Portugal

Brilliant black and white, tense and moody.

@Ana Lúcia: Thank you very much. I like your "tense and moody" description.

k@ from Paris, France

A pure splendor, atmospheric and so good to look at and breathe widely.

@k@: Always the excellent way of commenting, Karine. Thanks very much !

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

REMINDS ME OF WHEN I VISITED CORNWALL IN UK. Murky and Mysterious! Fantastic in B&W

@Ruthiebear: Canada's east and west coasts are quite different, as are the two great oceans. I find the weather more of a factor in the Maritimes. Rougher, hard winters, all of this making for some of the kindest funniest most life-loving generous people on the planet. The west coast is a three dimensional postcard. Both sides of this vast country have their own special moods and characteristics. Thanks, Ruthie.

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

Wow...It's wild and impressiv ! Beautiful composition .

13 Nov 2017 3:01pm

@Mhelene: The cliffs are so jagged and fierce, one has to wonder how many centuries before the pounding force of the ocean wins the erosion battle... thank you very much !

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Wonderful drama here. The rocks look as though they could cascade in to the sea at any moment

13 Nov 2017 5:17pm

@grouser: Yes, and over time that may be inevitable. Thanks, mister g.

Joyce from Montana, United States

wonderful frame. Love and miss the living shore.

13 Nov 2017 6:38pm

@Joyce: Big thanks, Joyce.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A beautiful view that you've captured here along the coastline!! I am fascinated by the coastline's tall linear forms as if it is made of slate, ready to flake off when eroding.

13 Nov 2017 7:08pm

@Steven: I was speculating that the harsh winters and wildly varying temperatures annually might cause this jagged appearance (rather than something more smoothly eroded like what I see on the west coast), as huge chunks of cliff face slough off. Thanks for the comment!

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Beautiful textures and tones in those cliffs.

13 Nov 2017 8:55pm

@Steve Rice: This part of Canada has a weather beaten charm that is very hard to describe; something primally beautiful. Thanks a lot for the comment.

Darkelf Photography from Perth, Australia

Great balance in the composition and excellent mood.

@Darkelf Photography: Thank you very much.

Denny Jump from Bellevue, WA, United States

So, Under the heading of "Where the F... Have I been?!?" I saw your very kind comment on my latest post and said, "this is rediculous!" I subsequently traveled back all the way to your 20 October image falling in love with each post of yours, as I kept the Morgan Plus 4 (I wish) in reverse...
I want to thank you for always being there and even through the periods of "dryness" on my is So wonderful to come home and have you there....Thank you sir! You are amazing ;-)
