an handstand a day keeps the doctor away

And even it’s a dream
To see the waves upside down

This is my sunset entry
For you contest.

Location: Caparica-Portugal

Hope it’s ok for your challenge

da binn ich doch gerne mit dabei:

Svolvær, Lofoten, Norway. i toke the pic at a summer evening, when the sun dosn't set at night. freezing 5° celsius and a harsh wind was blowing, but it was worth to get the stunning view.

wow sehr geile Aufnahme

Choosing just one is so difficult... but I've decided to go with this one : )

This photo was taken at the small coastal town of Wooli in New South Wales, Australia. We were lucky to be able to stay in a holiday home right on the beach, it was glorious there and with a town population of only 418 people, this was as busy as it got! Bliss...


Thank you!! : )
It was a really lovely morning on the beach that day.

This is my entry on EXTRAORDINARY PHOTOCHALLENGE - OCEAN initiated by @betterthanhome.

The Island of Samar

This picture was taken through my Smartphone last year in my hometown, EASTERN SAMAR, it is a province in the Philippines located in the Eastern Visayas region. Eastern Samar occupies the eastern portion of the island of Samar. Bordering the province to the north is the province of Northern Samar and to the west is Samar province. To the east lies the Philippine Sea, part of the vast Pacific Ocean, while to the south lies the Leyte Gulf.

Amazing photo&good luck to u

The sunset illuminates the coast of Pusong, Lhokseumawe, Aceh, Indonesia which enter the marine area of ​​the Strait of Malacca.

I found this hidden beach near Praia do Amado, Algarve, Portugal. I was there in the middle of the day scouting the location, and as it was during high tide, I didn't expect anything special and got back at sunset just in case. The view I saw was absolutely different. The tide was low, and there were lots of tidal pools reflecting the sunset sky. And this one with the boulder in the middle was the biggest, and it has the most beautiful reflection.

great capture like always. love the colours

Here is my Submission, Titled: "Mooloolaba Beach,"
Mooloolaba Beach is situated on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia and overlooks the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Amongst its many features are the white sandy beaches which are great for swimming and surfing.

Well, winter this year is really long. Already mid of March and only now finally we are getting temperature above zero. However as per weather forecast this Friday will have -11 again, pretty crazy

Well, and the story is. As soon as very cold weather stayed for quite a while, have decided also to visit nearby small city Palanga (mostly rest city) with a famous sightseeing bridge, which goes to the sea some hundred meters. Counting it will have nice ice formations as well

Was damn lucky again to catch stunning colourful sunset. And very calm. Just this time was really pretty dangerous to climb onto icy stones with a camera on a tripod. Was very careful and came back home even wet, like had good cross-fit training session

Hope result was worth it


Both your photos are fabulous... just letting you know though, I believe we're only allowed one entry : )

Well, it is not written in the rules though...

Yeah I know, I asked last week as I couldn't find what the rules were on that. Just thought I'd let you know : )
