Walking along the ocean’s edge… and looking back just before my tracks were obliterated by a frothy wave. And just before my boots were filled with cold seawater and sand. But I got the shot.

Beautiful seascape, Randall. Your Photo of the Day series is such an inspiration, your prose is as beautiful as your images, and the quotes are always thought-provoking and uncommon. Thank you for embarking on such a journey, a true gift to all photographers and viewers. #1553833
