The view from near Bodega Head warms golden brown as late afternoon light relentlessly settles over both land and sea, filtered through a thin marine haze.

Stunning! Beautiful framing of the shot, I like how you included the tree branch. The sunlight coming in from the side gives a wonderful feeling to the scenery.
Very, very beautiful!!

I love your framing also; the bit of tree and 'land' on the right pull us into the image with its beautifully soft colors.

I agree with the other comments--the tree branch in front gives it extra dimension and pulls our eye from the foreground, to the sand in the mid-ground and finally to the rocks in the background. Wonderful job!

VF, this is really beautiful - I especially like the slightly out of focused background which adds to the dreaminess of the lighting and colors....

The sharpness of the branch and the softness of the light behind create a great effect*

What a wonderful shot. Your image is soft and "warms" my heart...I can feel the afternoon light and anticipate the peaceful evening to come. The branch on the right is a crisp frame that emphasizes the tenderness of this scene.
