Cool capture, Donna ... and Solitude sure fits this one well ... sort of reminds me of a time (in the late 60's) when I was visiting Siam ... I was able to walk over a quarter of a mile out into the Gulf of Siam ... and the water was clear as can be ....

Yes... It is same sweet this solitude...
Because nobody really sits down lonely when is photographed so well!
In other words, with feeling and competence.
Congratulations...
You made a picture that approaches the painting...
And you made all this with a lot of wisdom.
Congratulations...

How I love these sweeping beach scenes with the focus on the small child so far off in the background. Very creative....and reminds me of how everything seemed so big and vast when I was small. Lynn
