Monique from Koh Samui, Thailand

Wow, is this really shot in the UK? completely different then I ever could imagine! I like the golden and blue colours and the abondenment accentuated by the two small figures.

@Monique: Hi Monique....we have a lot of coastline here in the UK - about 5 times that of France and almost as much as China. Even with our comparatively dense population it means that it's always possible to find deserted beautiful beaches. The weather isn't nearly as warm as Thailands however!

daina from United States

The simplicity of color (blue, white, ocher) and low cloudy sky creates a wonderful sense of vastness. Lovely.

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Hong Kong

Beautiful, Ian. The contrast between lovely sky and golden land is well marked. Excellent as usual.
