Christophe from Cherbourg, France

Superbe ce bleu !

3 Jun 2011 12:20pm


The beach terrain feels almost like an outline of part of Mother Earth taken by a Space shuttle. Gorgeous textures and hues and the reflection of that glorious cloudscape in a sumptuous frame. Being kind to everyone would solve so many of mankinds faults and failings, and save a lot of lives. Sadly, the nature of the beast precludes fulfilling such admiral ideology, though if more of us really tried, the world really would be a nicer place.

A wonderful post, my friend. Have a great weekend.

@DESPITE STRAIGHT LINES: Thank you dear Paul. As long as there are men such as you there is much hope:)

Hey Pavan, this has to be my favourite landscape shot on this site! The exquisite details, the dramatic sky, the enchanting reflections, the refreshing serenity, the soothing tone... such amazing beauty of Mother Nature observed by such a remarkable warm heart as yours and expressed in such perfect manner like this! It's a most moving poem that carries immense meaning to me! You know I'm touched... I'm so lucky to have known such a special person, my dear friend!

Reminds me of the decades previous when everything seemed bluer and whiter
