Cloudy Day...

...on Pine Island. Whether one sits on the sidelines, or stands in the water solving the problems of the world, this is a wonderful place for fresh sea air from the Gulf of Mexico.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

The placement of the figures and that sign must have taken ages to orchestrate - especially the sign ! The result is nothing less than a short play.

@Ronnie 2¢: You are always good for a chuckle, Ronnie ... as this 'drive by' capture demonstrates. I did choose when to tell Mike to stop, though. <grin>

So thats where the Gulf stream that laps our Pembrokeshire beaches comes from..Always wondered.

@Jeff: Sure, Jeff! ;D (If it begins here, it will have to go south and around the Keys to get into the Gulf Stream.) <grin>

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A beautiful expansive view of the Gulf! I love the tall grasses in the foreground which appear to give this shot some motion!

A beautiful image of sea ... calm ... that invites you to relax ... the encounter with oneself ... or, to a chat with friends ... Nice shot with good depth, color and light. .. Greetings.

This is NOW? WOW! I'd love to be there instead of here, sitting just like the lady on the right and emptying my mind of all thoughts! This is a beautiful composition about relaxation! And...simple happiness!
