This is completely stunning, all I want to say is perfect, perfect perfect!

The timing of the sea rolling in to shore is ideal, creating a break between the land, while tying together the abandoned log to the ocean itself.

The location of the sun in the sky, again, perfect. Just far enough above the horizon for the glow and the colour to be displayed in majesty, yet far enough beneath the clouds to see the colour captured within them.

You have framed this brilliantly, I feel the ocean pulling me in towards the picture, and the angle of the log adds to this feeling.

The subtle tones in the sky add to the overall warmth and simple good feelings this picture emits.

Love the style, love the capture, and love the way I feel looking at this.

Fantastic piece, thankyou for sharing it with us.

This is a very calming image, as any time at the beach would be!

The clouds surrounding the sun are great in the fact that it seems like the sun is breaking through
Of course, the water is beautiful and soothing, and the whole general atmosphere of it is pleasantly relaxing.
It makes me want to take a long walk on the beach even more to admire its beauty. The color is warm and soft, unlike what the sun would usually be

Overall, this is a very beautiful image that I admire!

On a Kris scale, I give you a 10 out of 10 for being truly aesthetic
wonderful work!
