Theme Day: Tranquility

image_1
Is it really the first of the month already?!  Well, that means it's theme day in the City Daily Photo community and this month it's tranquility.  This is the calm before the storm.  I snapped this photo a couple of weeks ago at sunset as a squall blew in from the Gulf of Mexico onto Sanibel island, about 100 miles south of Sarasota.  What a beautiful evening!   Hope your Friday is tranquil.  Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

I love beach photos! This one reminds me of my favorite artist, Robyn Joy. She does beautiful beach paintings. I have 3 of her pieces. Here is a link to some of her seascapes:

Gorgeous layering of all those horizontals, and the colours are to die for.

Good eye you have there.

Spectacular! I've got a shot trip planned next month for the Texas Gulf coast. I'm looking forward to some beautiful beach shots myself.

Great sky over the Gulf. The storm clouds and actual rain have finally hit the Bay area. Love your shot!

I like the lighting in this photo and I love Sanibel Island.

When the skies are like this, I get inside. Fast! Hope you did, too.
