Wonderful, you're right that light is truly magical. I love the bright part of the sea, with the silhouettes of people. Great shot.
Have a good weekend.

this sure looks magical! the high key loo and feel are wonderful! like the way that sand and water melt almost into one with the clouds above! the disappearing landscape is superb too!

@DarkElf: Thanks for the lovely comment. It is a wild west coast beach which is always so interesting to photograph, especially that distance which you noticed.
