So lovely, JM! Very well exposed, too. You've caught the light on the water perfectly and it all blends together. And, well, you've got rather splendid objects to work with here. Just a beautiful scene!

You've reminded me of the wideness of the sea. I've never been much of a sea lover but you're beginning to win me over.
