Lovely soft Dutch light being played out in this scene, captured late in the afternoon, on a fairly secluded beach. That sailor was having the time of his life, that front sail taking in just about as much wind as it can handle, that baby was on the move. The transparency of the large wave about to break worked out quite well, wouldn't you agree?
