Sometimes the mark of man alters the landscape and it's a shame because this beach is beautiful

MAGIC OF WIDE ANGLE...........!!

Although the initial aspect of the nature is sadly deteriorated , the picture you propose is really beautiful.
7 Feb 2012 7:49am
Indeed . . a sad footnote . .

Sad but beautiful picture...
7 Feb 2012 1:26pm

What a powerful contrast! The most beautiful colours and remarkable framing to heighten the image! Another masterpiece Pavan!
7 Feb 2012 3:22pm
Good title and love the quote too! Lovely image but sad commentary!
7 Feb 2012 3:33pm
An image and quote that can make a difference.

The man will end up destroying it… The Earth !

ah, humans and their trash.. when will we ever learn.. but it does make for a fine anchor point for this shot.. ;D
7 Feb 2012 5:07pm
Beautiful landscape. Wonderful colours and excellent composition. Great title, Pavan.
A winner shot for 'Environment and Man'. Five Stars :)
7 Feb 2012 5:21pm
Wunderbares Licht und Farben. Gutes Format.
7 Feb 2012 5:47pm
Great colors and frame !!
7 Feb 2012 6:17pm
I don't know what it is, but discarded tyres always make me so mad. You have captured the ugliness of it with your title and the strong focus on man's left overs.
7 Feb 2012 7:30pm
An incredibly beautiful shot in the top 80% of the frame. Then we have to deal with the reality of the automobile: old tires, pollution, drilling for oil, etc. And it will only get worse until we can no longer afford the gasoline.

A paradoxical image of the best sort : one that makes a statement and gives us pause. Beauty and the Beast, indeed. I've always enjoyed Thoreau; if only he knew what we would be able to do with our atmosphere and the orbital regions around this planet, filled with increasing amounts of space junk.
7 Feb 2012 7:59pm
Well Henry, we got news for you !! A moment of pollution = moment of beauty !~
7 Feb 2012 8:24pm
A rubber wheel on the beach ... is something you always find on the beaches. It hurts!
However, the picture of you is beautiful my friend! Perhaps there will come a day when nothing econtraremos not on the beach ... just golden sand for the sun ... rezemos to be like this ... among many other things that are very wrong in our world ... A hug friend Pavan..., Adela

Fantastic perspective and light Pavan.
7 Feb 2012 10:16pm
It looks like a watercolor painting...the water is surreal!
7 Feb 2012 11:37pm
7 Feb 2012 11:51pm
Yes, it's like we constantly have to remind ourselves of our existence :( I love the water on the sand and the reflections of the clouds. An otherwise pristine and peaceful scene.
8 Feb 2012 2:17am
Powerful image, tells a story. Really like the long perspective! Excellent composition and message, Pavan!
8 Feb 2012 2:59am
It is interesting and beautiful
8 Feb 2012 6:36am
8 Feb 2012 7:44am
Fabulous quote from Thoreau, Pavan, though some would say we've also messed up the skies big time! My first thought when I saw the tire was it'd make a great beach game, similar to horseshoes. :)
8 Feb 2012 8:16am
Beautifully done-- poignant message
8 Feb 2012 8:25am
8 Feb 2012 8:53am
Stunning view - well done

Excellent picture! ... The beautiful can show the worst, alas!
8 Feb 2012 9:38am
Excellent composition and very beautiful colours. The words are so very true and the image says it all. Beautifuly photographed.
8 Feb 2012 11:43am
Striking and powerful composition. Great irony we see here as the wheel began as mankind's greatest invention!
8 Feb 2012 12:15pm
even the tyre looks beautiful in that setting
8 Feb 2012 4:50pm
what a pity the pollution on a beautiful beach like that ! but, your composition is great ! superb wide angle of view, colors, reflections..
8 Feb 2012 5:26pm

8 Feb 2012 6:00pm

8 Feb 2012 6:33pm

8 Feb 2012 8:46pm
Very good shot Pavan!
8 Feb 2012 11:10pm

11 Feb 2012 3:34pm
UNnpaysage superbe , bien cadré avec de belles couleurs et une démonstration percutante de la pollution. Bravo!
11 Feb 2012 4:58pm
what a beautiful beach and colors that have a aplaya seems pure, but for the tire that reminds us of the contamination. a very good picture to show and think!! a big kiss. Alejandra
11 Feb 2012 11:00pm
Lovely composition, Pavan! Your description is so apt as well..
12 Feb 2012 3:15am
13 Feb 2012 6:47am

13 Feb 2012 2:26pm
Bien triste mais très jolis couleurs pour cette photo !
13 Feb 2012 2:27pm
You made an art piece out of a not-so-pretty reality. Very nicely done.
13 Feb 2012 3:48pm
So cool this image was featured in the new Am3 newsletter just out!
13 Feb 2012 10:42pm
