Beautiful composition of light, color and the elements, JP...I love the curved shoreline and winding road to the church on the hill...a very pretty place. #9071306

This is one of them pictures that makes you shake your head as you cannot believe hust how beautiful this picture is. I love how we follow the shore around the bend and the people on the beach enjoying this gorgeous sight. The waves as they splash ashore is lovely. I enjoy the road leading up the side to the top and the church way up there as if getting closer to God in a literal way. The dramatic sky is incredible and powerful but so beautiful. The colors and lighting so pretty. Incredible beauty my friend. #9071308
