Nice composition. It looks like a very good place to go for a walk.

@Michael Skorulski: Environmentalists are now trying to restrict access to these dunes because of the threat of endangered bird and plant species.

I like this composition. You are lucky to have the dunes close-by. Maybe it's possible to have wooden walkways without distrubing the birds or causing erosion?

This is nice and seldom seen in photos... I've been on those shores and marveled at the vista.

Wow, a very beautiful shoreline. I think the Great Lakes look like oceans anyway.

J'adore la composition de cette photo. Tu as bien su gérer le contraste ce qui n'est pas facile en prenant face au soleil.
