Ótima foto e linda praia com águas cristalinas. No final do mês estarei em Portugal e não vejo a hora de conhecer lugares que me parecem tão lindos e agradáveis.

Um abraço e um ótimo dia.

Meu amigo, que foto linda, que cor de agua maravilhosa!Aqui hoje está 30 graus, será que perdi o rítmo do verão, e estou estranhando o calor? Que nada...estou adorando tudo isso!
Ficaria melhor aí nessa praia maravilhosa! :)
Abraços

Excellent shot. MB

I love the colors. The water looks so expansive. Like it will stretch out far beyond the boundaries of this photo.

Sharon said...

Such a tiny soul in such a vast body of water. Wonderful perspective.

I hope your city has you on the payroll because you are making the world fall in love with your great city/country. Now, I've got to see Portugal. That "twins" exhibit is fun; this water shot is tranquil. You've got it all!

I don't know the Portuguese word for 'Sundog' either but here is where it comes from: scientific name parhelion, plural parhelia, from Greek parēlion

Steffe said...

A very different perspective. And a good one.

awarewriter said...

Outstanding image. The fearless little boy gives this image a perfect focal point. Love the colors and patterns.

Joanne said...

Lindo!!!

Boom Nisanart said...

Stunning !

Joan Elizabeth said...

This is a beautiful shot, great composition, lovely colour, clear water a surprising green.

Jacob said...

One of your best, Jose! Brilliant color and so very well composed. Little boys can be brave or just plain dumb but this water doesn't look too threatening... :-)

Leif Hagen said...

I want to go swimming in an ocean!

Hilda said...

Perfect composition, JM! And your title emphasizes it.

T. Becque said...

Brilliant composition! It provokes a protective instinct within me, as if I need to swoop him out of that huge body of water! Although I know he's probably have lots of fun!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

It's a big ocean and only a small little boy. He feels fearless, but I don't for him. Very emotive photo.

Dina said...

He does look very alone in a big sea.
The sparkling quality is beautiful.

James said...

Very nice! I like the way the water's color goes from a lighter to a darker shade amd the reflected sunlight is beautiful.

Francisca said...

I want to dive in NOW!! Delicious shot.

Deepak Acharya said...

Bravo !

Marie-Noyale said...

How I wish I was that little boy!!!!

Anzu said...

Boys will be boys.
Be careful !
And please enjoy precious moment of you ♪

Serra said...

Que água apetitosa! Exactamente o oposto da água aqui na Figueira... agitada e opaca!
