The colors were so inspiring at the Sea yesterday morning that I opted for a view of the sky and water rather than a path in the dunes. The result is for you to enjoy. Mind you this situation lasted the better part of 45 minutes, afterwhich the heavens became overcast with clouds to the point were no celestial blue sky was visible. Setting myself up on a spot, in the dunes, risking the chance of getting a fine (boete) from the local authorities, I had this rather brilliant vantage point. That trawler made a good model and was just what I needed to give a reference of location to this scene.
