[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken the same morning as this photo.

I loved the soft morning light ... you can see the light creeping in from the left. I was sitting at the pool enjoying the morning and the mood, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A group of kids ran to the beach. You can see here, the sand at this resort is very dark ... it's black volcanic sand .. quite coarse, and you certainly couldn't walk on it with bare feet ... far too hot!!!

Hi Trudy,
A fine delicate perspective with such tranquility! A minimal landscape composition with the inclusion of humans.
Nice soft color tones and a rather graphical composition with all these horizontal lines.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Nothing else, Like a painting! You use the colour as a true artist. Very calm and tranquil landscape.

Boa tarde Trudy
Lines, colors, looks so perfect that the beauty is almost out of this world. Even the dark sand looks great...You describe very well the photo...your photo gives me serenity and beauty and not just to my eyes.
Um abraço

Well composed Trudy! Simple stuff again but effective! Nice sidelight and shadows... Good work!!!!!


Remember the photo of the rider and horses in tow my friend , that was such a great catch there , this is good too , love the light here a great deal , the best part of the day on the coast is morning or evening , midday being too hot for treading the black sand barefoot i can understand that humm , the pool is therefore inviting then , hey , the sand appears like lunar soil squeezed between vivid green grass and light blue sea now those are real earth features , even without the persons it would still be a nice beach view i think , of note here the space allocated to the sky in your compo , one of those instances where the rule of thirds can be put aside , the tints of blues are superb,
nice shot amiga,

Hi Trudy

You constructed that image like an artist.I like the off center elements and the soft light.
A very good shot
