    Beautiful! I had a few shots I’d taken of the sea, on holidays, but none had the note of warmth that your photo does.

    So true said! We do not appreciate what we have and forget that life is not endless, unfortunately, and that we do not have second chance! Beautiful shot!

        I can imagine. Do you find you start to take it for granted?

        Not really, but I can tell you that my kids do. Each time I stop to admire a reflection of the sun on a wave, the color of the ocean or gaze at the perfect sugar beach, my daughter looks at me as if I were totally retarded. And says “Mum, come on, it’s a beach, we know what a beach is” (!)
        Funny thing though, last time we visited Paris, she totally felt in love with .. the Eiffel Tower! “so big, so beautiful”, the elevators were the most impressing thing she had ever experienced.She loved the view, she loves everything about the Tower. While I kept on wondering what was wrong with my daughter, to me the Eiffel Tower is mostly iron! 😉
        It’s all relative…
