Wild South Coast is wild. I like it.
I grew up on one of the most eastern points of the North-east coast here...pretty much nothing but oil-rigs and seals between us and the north pole. So, I really appreciate wild seas like that!!
I don't know if it's some quality of the light there, or lack of pollution, or something you're doing... but the colours in your pictures are always so intense, like the saturation is several points higher. Although, I suspect it's the lack of pollution... there's no dirty brown smudge layer above the horizon! [something that's always evident here, wherever you go.]
I really haven't travelled widely enough to comment on different qualities of light but remember that we here are closer to the equator than you are, despite having similar climates. Our antipodes actually lies somewhere in Spain.
I haven't touched the saturation on this shot in post processing, or most of the other colour ones taken with the Canon, and it's still set to its factory default standard picture style. On my monitor it's a pretty true to life representation.
Yeah, I'd pretty much guessed that was a fair representation of reality over there... funny really, I knew about the latitude thing, but that really adds an emotional/visual angle...
Frankly, the light there is gorgeous in comparison!!
Very nice. As mentioned above, the colours are intense. Though from my experience, that is definitely an NZ thing. *G*
