It is difficult to see, but this couple had taken off their shoes on left them on one rock and were standing embraced on an outcropping by the Pacific Ocean as dusk descended.

    Blue. And water. And shadow play. And Mary Ann Reilly. Kind of the distillation of mood. Nice…

  • I had no tripod with me, so I had to balance the camera on the top of a post…the beauty of blur is that it loves imperfection:) Thanks Ted.
