Ok, in keeping with the spirit of the forum, here is an image by one of my favorite landscape photographers, Joe Cornish.
I find this image to be stunning in its simplicity, yet with rich tones, and just the right moment. The flowing curve of the water, as well as the detail on the sand, just to the left of the rock are what make the image for me. They keep my eyes going back to the rock in the center. This is a stunning image, that I wish I could do half as well on.
