Welcome back. I like how from such a close shot I still get a beachy vibe.

@Jason: Hey Jason, thank you very much. I'm not quite sure if I'm absolutely back yet. I need to get out there and shoot some new stuff. Oh, and spot on with the beachy vibe!

Ronnie 2¢ from London, United Kingdom

I, too, knew the beach connection. That stuff loves damp air . .

I saw you haven't posted in a while. I hope you are doing fine. I came across this one while looking through your blog. It's a beautiful composition. I enjoy most the choice of tone and the selective focus. A very natural and comforting image. Cheers!

@Luis A. De Jesus R.: Hi Luis, thanks so much for your comment which was very timely - nice to hear from you at the end of a horrible day. No I haven't posted for a while - I've lost my "mojo" somewhat! However I am doing my best to get back into it. Hope you are doing well. Cheers.
