This land is Avalon. When I'm going to leave this body, I wish my body-conch will be purified by fire and the dust scattered in the winds of the landscape. If anyone want to visit my grave, he will have to find me in the murmur and essence of the landscape, to feel yourself as a part of the Island. You would hear me in a poem of wind that wriggles through tree tops, could find my touch in the sea waves, to see me in the face of the sun...
I do not need a grave! It isn't important, just a piece of stone as a monument of human egomania. One day the world would be overwhelm by the tomb stones. If you really need a reminiscence for some dead person put it in your soul space near to the heart, not in the letters of a cold marble. Then you will stay together forever!

Magical shot. Love those reflections in the water; this is really a great shot. Very well done.

A fabulous photo and a touching note, Leo. Would like to know more about what I see in the picture.

Interesting!! Colour different from majority of sunset picture.
That colour, reflections of sun and the way that reflections are connected could cause with different people quite a different reading from this photo.
For example this could be a representation of UFO coming from the sky, just as well as represention of view on romantic evening with someone you love.
But, I think this is what art is all about. Not, to explicitly tell you what you have to see (or read) but to give you starting point to expand ones emotions, feeling and ones look at world around him.
Well, I absolitelly find all of that in this simple, but wery good photo.

Once again... a very nice composition. Simple but effective..
I really enjoy the way the sunlight dances off the water the the tide curves into the rock...

A trail of gold speckles raining onto our Hearts;
A trail of Light, Joy and Love filled from within;
A hint of giggle; a splash of freedom; a tickle of warmth;
A picture worth more than a thought;
A Moment captured within a non-existent frame;
Sometimes something moves us from within, even when we don't know why; this picture did just that to me, and I allowed myself to play around, to smile, to chuckle within, with a pinch of lustful Joy. I hope You don't mind :)
Thank You for sharing such an inspiring picture!
