Holidays again folks.This is the second tree located on the hotel beach area.Taken about 10mins after the sunrise.Liked the shadow and footprints and what is left of some sand bags used for what I don't know.
Enjoy your Sunday and it looks like it is going to be nice today.

Thanks for having a look and large is best.

I likethe long shadows across the sand,works well as a lead in & contributes to the fg interest.You positioned yourself well to shoot into the sun,the tree has made a nice silhouette against the sky.
I think the horizon may be off a couple of degrees but it could just be my varifocals playing up !
