What a beautiful view! colours of water and sand are so beautiful :) It must be nice and hot in Florida :) #5463058

Thank you Natalia for your compliment. Well, of course temperature is a relative thing so depending on where your from it more than likely is hot. However it is the most beautiful time of the year here now and all the "snowbirds" come down from up north to enjoy the mild weather. The summer, yea, that's HOT. #5463895

Wow...what beautiful colors! I love the empty seems so serene! It has been almost 20 years since I have been to a southern beach....this shot makes me want it so bad I can taste the salt spray! :-) Wonderful job on this one! #5464222

Thank you so much Aimee. I know how that feels; to want to go to a place so bad you can "taste" it. I look at all the beautiful winter pictures here and just dream of hearing the crunching snow under my feet as I stroll along in the serene environment deep in thought and the wonder of it all. To capture the horses, deer and birds of the north in my own images is something I hope to do someday. #5467744
