Life is Good

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Life is Good
Life is Good
f7.1, ISO 100, 1/250, focal length 81.0, 70-300mm zoom, metering mode partial, 62mm Circular Polarizer, Atlantic Beach, Atlantic Beach, NC.

We came across these chairs sitting out on the beach across from the hotel we were staying at & it was the perfect vacation type scene to me.

They have surf shops out there that have these t-shirts that say "Life Is Good"; we saw all the locals & the tourists wearing shirts with that on there. I thought that pretty much entitled my thoughts about this picture. What could be a better, more relaxing life than a day at the Beach? ;)

Life really is Good! Take time to enjoy it everyday!
