Our window is opened onto the sun setting on an abstract sea. Is this a strange new world or just a dream?

All C&C's welcome

I like this, Jim, although I do not get the sense of a sea.

I Love this- so bright and I see the clear ocean water with some salt pattern just washing over the rocks and sand that I can see from your window!:clap:

Oh, this is just lovely...I can almost hear the waves washing the shore, smell the salty air, feel the sun on my face and some handsome, suntanned guy offers me a cuba libre while he puts suncream on my back...*pop!* bursts the bubble. *sigh* what a nice daydream, though. Thanks alot! :D

Jon, Thank you for your comment.... it's proof that one can enjoy an image solely for it's abstract qualities.

Kate, I love your description... thank you for looking so close.

Katharina, I love your description also... but you are completely wrong about the suntanned guy. It's a topless beach and a beautiful girl serving vodka martinis... with two olives. ;-)

Clem, as you probably know.... for me it's lately been all about texture and light. Thanks for your comment.

Barbara, thanks again for commenting. Always appreciated.

Katharina, there could be more then one beach but my beach sounds more exciting ;-)

Hi Katie,

No, it's a Photoshop creation... there were no photos involved. Thanks for looking.
