The vacation is all past tense sad to say. I am back in Zone 5 shivering in the 18 degree weather with the rest of you temperature hearty humans :) 90 in the sun to 20 degrees in one day flight back is a real system shocker!

Steven the sky is amazing and I like the way you placed the angle of the shore line and the in coming waves. Vet appealing.

It is genuinely a beautiful capture Steven! I am surprised, no surfers?

I feel for you and the other snow-bound 'victims'! I am only two hours from beaches like this and it has been unseasonably warm here, 80 today! BUT, I wouldn't mind some of that snow either!!! :)

Welcome back, it IS good to 'see' you!

Beautiful image Steven, and you weren't too far from me when you visited here! I didn't realize the ocean temp was that warm, but I did hear something before the cold spells about the water temp being warmer than I expected for that time of the year. I should have been at the beach taking a swim! I am glad I live here and don't have to go back to the cold!
