At home Southern California has a more dramatic approach when it comes to the coast. Rolling hills abruptly end and give way to jagged cliffs anchored by palms and chaparral. Our beaches are carved out of little and big coves making it almost impossible to walk on the sand from one beach to another. That's why we all have cars so we can drive to our favorite "secret" or not so secret beach, we all have them.
It doesn't matter what shore I am standing on they all have the same effect on me. Calm.
Calm is exactly how I feel when I saw this photo from skiingrn1 called Lone Sailboat. What a stunning capture of a part of Alaska that's not all ice! Perfectly sharp I can almost hear the boat as it cuts through still waters.
