Pavan Kaul from Mumbai, India

Absolutely brilliant composition with the cracked path leading the eye into the frame...the crab tells quite a tale about the laws of nature...wonder if an unusually high tide could spell a similar fate for the inhabitants of that idyllic home! Love this Ian!

Mike from Lichfield, United Kingdom

I think this is an outstanding shot. The dead crab plays a crucial part in the photo and the dried up bed leads the eye perfectly to the house.
