Photographer's Note

It never occurred to me until it hit me just now, but this originally romantic picture of someone's footprints fading away on the beach of Khao Lak has now become a very grim underlining of the terrible events to transpire at this very place one year later.

From a technical point of view, yes the photo is of course not very aligned with the horizon, but rotating it would also remove a lot of the sand patterns in the bottom corner which I feel give character to the shot. Cropping away the top third of the photo of course solves this problem and emphasizes an empty beach but I also think it becomes a less interesting image.
