Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

Oh my gosh! This is SO beautiful!
I was just there! We visited the three State parks, just down the road,(Shore Acres, Sunset Beach, and The other escapes me just now- but it is the Lighthouse... and we stayed at Bullard's Beach :) We had a wonderful time, and I wish I could just pop over there any time...Took us 12 hours to drive, though!

20 Aug 2009 2:38am

@Tracy: Bullard's Beach is a super neat campground. We have stayed there several times. You will see a number of shots in the series that should look familiar.

I'm working my way backward through this series and this one is by far my absolute favorite. I love the blue tones and the glow of the lights reflecting off the water. Superb shot, Jack!! Frame & Hang!

24 Aug 2009 12:58am

@Lesley: Thanks, Les. It did indeed print up quite well. And it just might end up being the star of the entire series. However, I must say that the Working Boats is far and away the best print; it looks like an ink etching.

Jen from St. George, United States

Beautiful shot! I love the one bright yellow light in the middle of the sea of blue. :)

24 Aug 2009 10:55pm

@Jen: Thanks, Jen.
