Sorry to hear it was all destroyed but it's a fantastic photo. The clouds look like waves. Amazing. Thank you Steve.
When White Balance is corrected, whats the big deal?
The fact that the FEMA response is actually less than Bush's Katrina?
The photo is particularly striking, for me at least, in that in my many years of beachcombing, I've never seen, whether Hawaii, the West Coast, Europe, Mexico or Central America, a beach with playground toys. (I think most places, the beaches are either public, the beaches are undeveloped, or the nightly tides and surf would wipe those low lying structures out) Even without the sky the abandoned glitzy toys would have been worthy. The foreboding sky makes it truly surreal.
This picture made my day. I go to Ship Ahoy and seeing it this weekend was heartbreaking. What I did realize was that its the people who make the beach so special and even if there's only a beach and an ocean, we'll all be okay. Thank you for sharing!
