This shot is from a beach on the south coast of Iceland.
The black volcanic sand may not make it the prettiest, but the sobering thought here, is that if you were to swim south from this spot, you wouldn't hit land again until Antarctica!

Wonderful image! The light is beautiful and the strategically placed life preserver makes the image.
