Looks like a lonesome, contemplative hour. This is why I tend to take my vacation off-season. Peace of mind.

Great shot! If you were to crop out the left side of the photo containing street lights, it would resemble a mirage...

It's almost opalescent.

marley said...

Yes, lovely light. Great photo.

First of all, your new header is wonderful! A feast for the eyes.

The post photo is also superb! (What else would I expect from you?). This must be low tide, when people can go sit on the rocks and meditate. I wonder if it's covered up during high tide. Or maybe people fish from it during high tide...

I don't care how "chilly" it was, I would have been barefoot walking along the beach!

Wolynski said...

Yes, beautiful and peaceful... and chilly if you say so.

AB said...

Nice gradation in tones.

Laurent said...

Yes great lights and I am sure that the chill is nothing compared to the freezing cold wind we have in Paris today.
