Calm beautiful bay colors...1

Uploaded: July 28, 2013


One of a series.
I always thought of the sea as beautiful,colorful,healing,fun and calming.
If you could have only seen what this spot looked like the day before hurricane sandy hit you would have been shocked.. It was literally moving and churning like if was full of a million deep grey underwater tornados. I knew that something really bad was going to happen and it did.
But I still love the sea'
