The rhythm of the sand and timeless seashore is a soft song of enduring beauty.

you're right, it's best to just sit back and enjoy the rhythm of this photo.

Couldn't resist, could you?

The sand and the sky become one if you look long enough. Powerful rhythm, textures...

This is splendid, love the texture of the beach and the few apparent rocks, wish i lived nearer the sea to practice these things.

Great entry. Great treatment.

Now if this had a nekkid gyrl on a big white horse in the foreground I'd vote it a 10! As it is I'd only give it a 9! Can't vote, can't do either. Beautiful! Send me a 20x40 to put in my living room. Congrats.

Ben? This is so delectable. Such extraordinary lighting and textures. (not voting)

Wonderful. Bound to do well and get a posthumous ribbon. I can't actually place what it is I like about this. I think it's the curves, and stacks of tones.
Fav'd.
10'd.

This is mesmerizing with it's undulating sandy trails created by the tide. I love how the clouds mimic them.

Bspurgeon? Amazing. I love these long exposures but theres enough detail to keep it great, and the clouds are fantastic.

Now, this is beautiful, like a memory of a time that has gone but the heart aches to return too.
