Bay of Dreams by © Cassidy (Karin) Taylor

I took this photo yesterday and have applied some filters to it, but really the water was just beautiful and so pristine, I’ve given it a vintage treatment, for nostalgia’s sake….to help bring back happy memories of beachside holidays. This day, there was a little family there feeding the seagulls their leftover fish and chips. Idyllic. Sunny. Beautiful. The Bay is just before a long rock wall, that leads boats out the bar to sea. Often when there are waves, the surfers and kayakers, surf the Bay. It’s also a great spot for diving and snorkelling if you don’t mind sharing the water with the locals (sharks) lol….

    I love how the gulls are in a row aligning with the water’s edge :o)

    The transition of the water’s colour as it gets to the edges certainly is lovely; very nice Karin.

  • thanks so much Mui-Ling…there were a good number of them (seagulls) there yesterday…so glad you like it :)
