    What a beautiful beach and photo. Much as I love snow and fog, this looks sublime. Love that turquoise water and peaceful-looking beach.

  • Thank you, Jan. I think my perfect place would have spring-like weather 10 months of the year with a month of Fall and one for Winter. Add in tropical azure water and jagged, glaciated mountains nearby and that would be my personal Nirvana. Well, one can dream, can’t they?

  • Teresa, Happy Dance, Happy Dance!! Thank you for this honor. I can’t decide which beach scene I like most in your latest Features. Perhaps that’s because I’d love to experience each one of them! :-))
