    Such a beautiful capture John – Love it x

  • Hi Gail. Thanks for the support and the favourite. So many times we travel far away and take lots of photos and neglect where we live. This is a start to recording things from my home.

    I simply love these colours. The light and composition are also wonderful. A true winner, John.

  • Hi Bev. Thank you for your Favourite and kind words. The light was changing constantly, and went from bright pink, to oranges and reds. Looking out to sea, this took a completely different colour which was reflected in the wet sand.
