"Mesmerizing"
Not a photo in the water, but rather, of the water. The crystal clear Cayman water I call home. Where I dive and explore and photograph magical things. It laps at the shore, calling me in. The water here is mesmerizing.

We had the opportunity to visit the Atlantic Coast - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in February. Beautiful beach, with so few visitors - well except the ever present Sea Gulls. I thought I would take a pic from their perspective - lovely.

Red slave huts in Bonaire, maintained as a reminder to the past. They develop an achingly beautiful glow at sunset. An incongrous effect when you think back how they were used.
