DANG it was COLD out there out this beach!!! The man on the beach happened to be out for a walk I guess. It was so kind of him to stand still for awhile - considering I needed a long exposure time. :D I have no idea who he is, nor did I talk with him - just passing thru.

I imagine I'll get some comments that the horizon isn't straight. From the angle I took this shot the pier angles out. Thought about a minor rotation to straighten but then I figured the man on the beach would look funny. So, it stays natural. :)

Just lovely - I love the mix of snow and sand, really beautiful and something my imagination couldn't work up.
