This seascape is so fresh and beautiful in it's turquoise and whites and gorgeous reflection...
but Max rather steals the show. His cavorting is so fun to see...his joy is catching.

I like to see your dog running like a deer in the soft sand of the beach ... reminiscent of the many I've had and I have dogs ... Of all sizes and breeds everyone goes or went mad when they got to the beach. Magnificent and lively composition of the state of play in a dream landscape!
A hug y muchos besos amigo Jack! Adela

Zora Zoé Schmidt from Greifswald, Germany

Dear Jack, your picture is unbelievable... It is so full of live, spirit, freshness, joy - viewing it wakes the hidden wish in me to turn into a mermaid - and swim away in those fresh waves - feeling life in every cell of the body! I can really feel the breath of fresh air just by viewing. It is - for me - what I call a "healing photo". Viewing it will bring back life's spirit. It is so magnificent, I cannot take my eyes of... brilliant!!

@Zora Zoé Schmidt: Thank you for your extravagant comment.
