The Pool

By ellavr
This is the swimming pool that is on the esplanade in Cairns. The foreground is the pool, the man is walking on the boardwalk and then of course the inlet, which I managed to get at high tide.

To those of you who have ever gone to Cairns, this fantastically beautiful, free, lifeguarded, non fenced pool has been added in the last year or so, adding a whole new dimension to the city. I love the shot - I have it on my desktop - it really reminds me of home, and I love the fish sculptures, and I love the way it seems to blend the pool into the sea.

I have been away from ePz for a few weeks, sorry, I am finding decorating, working and starting a PhD a little bit of a strain! Hopefully I will recover my senses soon!

Looking forward to your comments.

Love it - the graphic 'fish' and the overall blue with the differing shades creating foreground to background flow - well done!
