Ksth lovely image! It reminds of a memory from my past. Just after they fix holes in the retal (sp) of good eye I had to use my other eyey the one with the reatched rental (sp) I was stilling seeing in B & W and we into a gas station and the shelveling looked smthing like that. At the time I thought we were somewhere else and they turned the couch so the light would not blind me from the lazer work. They forgot to tel me what the dr. told about the light! Boy that real got me confusted. now I can inway about it now.

This is a spectacular photo...one that show action without movement...and sets the tone of a story, without any expression. Excellant!!!

I agree too. Great photograph. I particularly like the reflections in the wet sand, as well as the dramatic lighting and the story the picture tells.
