"As the crow flies,
I ain't too far from you"
Every planet we reach is dead.
This picture shows a potentially idyllic stretch of beach in Kallady, near Batticaloa in the east of Sri Lanka. It's a fascinating place, but the rubble of the tsunami (26.12.2004) remains everywhere, as most boats in the area carry the logo's of their donors.
The sea is rough and the dogs not always friendly, lending a dark and desolate feel to this area, however idyllic in potential.
There's hope, but there's also lots of work to be done, still. A clean-up would be a start.
I guess these last two lines would apply for the whole globe, come to think of it.

La profondeur de la plage couper par les bateaux et la force des vagues, hélas beaucoup de déchets sur la plage ...le top avec le vol de l'oiseau

Good POV and amazing depth!
and nice composition with the two crows.
When I was there about 28 years ago this part was forbidden for tourists because of the cfivil war.
Have a good week,Leo
