I find this image quite visually striking set against the black background of the viewing page. Dreamlike in quality and feel with the darkened individual figures set against the muted colors of the beach, water and sky. The reflective quality of the wet sand adds to the visual impact of the picture by extending the individual figures so that they stand out even more than if the sand had not been so reflective.

An odd but interesting mixture of poses and activity among the silhouettes: some standing alone, some walking hand-in-hand, one looks like he's sitting, all detached from each other, and nobody seeming to be paying any attention to the water or distant scenery. Janper's characterization of 'dream like' seems pretty accurate.

Definitely dream-like - that's for sure. Viewing this photo gives thoughts to day dreaming and treasured memories that have been tucked away for a long time come popping back. Well done, John, your photo took me down memory lane to very happy times.

The soft colours add to the dreamlike quality John, well captured,
