All is quiet...

We had the pleasure to spend an early February weekend at the Belgian coast, staying in a cosy little apartment owned by close friends. The weather was frisk and windy, but mostly dry.

One afternoon, I was looking out from our 6th floor balcony onto the mostly deserted beach. The already lowering sun in a fully overcast sky threw very soft light across water and land - God's own softbox at its best.

I took a number of shots of the scene ahead of me: water, sand and sky blending into each other, creating a layered geometric pattern. I especially like the subtle tones and textures in the image above. The lonely strollers and their dog complete the picture just fine.

What more does one need?
