    Good one for the Solitude thread, Ric. You sure had fun on that beach! All those little veins of water make this one especially interesting.

    great colors and textures. I especially like the completely transparent shallow water, and the hint of more water up top gives the picture a disorienting "where is he" sense that adds to the "lost" feeling. Great capture!

    This could be a fantastic advertisement for suntan lotion ~~ with golden sand lying there on the beach like skin on some mammoth creature sunbathing in Brazil ~~ and a tiny biped, no bigger than a mosquito, walking across its sweaty belly ~~ just above the navel ~~ in complete bewilderment. Without question, the most sensual image from Kite Aerial Photography ever to appear in Flickrdom. This is how we must appear to birds and angels.

    Very impressive aerial view. The pool seems more like a beastly vortex about to envelope its prey.
