Sea, snow, sky, a great trilogy.
This "presence" is just at the right place.

I have to say, snow on a beach is something i've never seen in my life.

@Ainsley: Hi Ainsley, I haven't seen it very often either although it seems to be a more frequent event over recent winters.

Love the feeling of isolation. The wide format really ads to that

I agree with John Leech. The isolation is palpable.
