What an eloquent quotation. A flat as a pancake sea you have there mr Oldfield, I take it you staid dry that day?
Yep stayed dry that day mate. That shot was taken at Biarritz, with a steel blue sea meeting a steel blue sky. No tripod, just balanced my camera on my backpack, & deliberately tried to shoot a little overexposed. I love those days when it's so glassy & overcast that the line between sea & sky becomes a little blurred.
