A nice photo that reminded me my visit to Nida and the Curonian Spit in summer 2001. I remember they had had the job of "dunes master" in the old days; I was quite impressed. I don't remember to have seen a such amazing sky though! Just beautiful! I understand from your note that we are looking here towards the lagoon, but sort of wonder how could you be facing north since the spit is more or less oriented north-south.
Have a nice week-end,

I don't think I ever would have guessed Lithuania had I seen this shot without already knowing the location. Great and simple beach shot with an incredible sky punctuating it - well captured!
