This looks like paradise, I wonder if you managed to climb down and have a swim? I love the Pine trees climbing down the rockside and the rocky little island - a fantastic place altogether and very well captured here!!
TFS and best wishes for the New Year! Kind regards, Ulla

A wonderful sight on this hidden bay, which seems still very natural and shows an amazing mix of sea, rocks and forest. Ans what a beautiful point of view you have chosen. Very fine landscape picture in your subtle personal style.
Thanks and kind regards

Looks like a beautiful mini-bay with a wonderful beach Niek, the trees and bushes in the FG provides the composition with great depth and the bright sky produces very nice shadows of the trees and rocky terrains. A perfect naturescape indeed!
TFS and cheers,

A superb image made from multi-exposures, Niek.
This is a difficult technique which you have handled very well in this composition.
The place itself is unique; I thought this kind of vegetation would be impossible by the seaside.
Thanks and wishing you a Happy New Year!

this place is like in paradise.
You had good luck to find it - and no people there, fantastic - so I'm right - it was in paradise ...

A perfectly composed image with wonderful detail, exposure and color. This looks like a fantastic spot to spend the entire day at. You were very fortunate to find it void of anyone else, especially after seeing how beautiful it is.
Thank you for sharing your Secret Bay with all of us!!

I'd like to be there right now!
I know a similar place in the south part in Brazil, but I wasn't able to capture that place like this one.
Your POV and technical management can show us the real view and we can almost touch this. Colours and volumes are also good.
TFS and see you in TN.

I wish you a happy, healthy and successful new year 2010!
Wow Niek. This is wonderful! Aren't you proud of the progress you've made in photography? The blending of the four exposures is flawless. How did you do it?
Thanks for the directions to your secret bay. We just went past there but all was shrouded in fog!! Weather forecast said clear! I was so upset. I mean HEAVY fog for three days all along the coast. That is more a summer phenomenon. Oh well. We did get a bit of sun further south...and some neat photos of marine life (sea lions, elephant seals, harbor seals, otters, egrets, cormorants etc). I still need some more seascapes for my slideshow and this image of yours is motivating.
Ulla's comment re: going for a swim made me smile. Did you stick a toe in that water? This far north the Pacific can be quite chilly... numbing actually. I'm not that tough.
TFS your super image and info.

3 hours editting time! Eecks you are patient. I have to say that is much more than I am willing to spend on a picture, but I can see that this one would never have come off without it.
Great composition, exposures and patience and Best wishes for the New Year.

Good to connect with you again after a long absence.
Wow! What a beautiful spot.
The California and Oregon coasts are full of these "secret" beaches.
You captured this one beautifully, with a lovely composition.
Your technical notes went way over my head, but they sound very impressive.
I also enjoyed your website.
Take care and keep in touch.
