Well, I am that soul awake! This is just beautiful. The red is so vivid and bright up against the black sandy shore. Just stunning.

Very cool. Excellent perspective.

...and drifts away with the ebb of the tide. best...jerry

I do not know the proverb! Nice picture with just the right colors and shapes in contrast!
Dramatic and full of impact. Love it to bits.

Waiting for the Tide......................What colours and angle !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2 Oct 2009 6:13am
Like hot peppers on their black plate, love the perspective and that colony of big red heads hoping for the tide to free them... But maybe they fly away instead of floating if hopes open up to real dreams... Love the play of red and black a lot*
2 Oct 2009 6:35am

2 Oct 2009 9:00am
Some signals that they invite to follow the line.
2 Oct 2009 9:03am
I cannot decide whether to float away with the delight of the image or the wisdom of the proverb . . what a delightful mix they make ! Mega posting.
2 Oct 2009 9:32am
The ground to another planet. A path strewn with red dreams like small pebbles to show the path. But I wonder what these strange things, drugs? I do not know, you float in an unreal world that reminds me of the MRG! Have a nice day ..
2 Oct 2009 9:50am
Gorgeous low key light, I love it, mind you I thought I was looking at a bizarre string of red peppers first of all!

I'm wide awake now. And what a pleasure to be woken up by such a beauty. Brilliant, Sharon! If I'm looking at it long enough I think I can see the sky reflected on the beach, smell the salty air & run free. A pearl that goes straight to the heart. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
2 Oct 2009 10:29am
drole d'ambiance !
2 Oct 2009 11:30am

SUPERB shot Sharon... Love the line of the floats - the red really stands out against the dark sand.
2 Oct 2009 1:36pm
A great angle of view and a strong visual impact with these 2 contrasted colors. Well done.
2 Oct 2009 1:41pm
For me it has the bloody red look of them boxing gloves that carry also a lot of hope for those who are engaging on the vast and unknown ocean of undisputed but so disputed glory.
2 Oct 2009 1:48pm
I love this colorful and wonderful composition. The angle of the shot and that long line of floats is really fine.
2 Oct 2009 2:29pm
Hey, I love the composition in this shot! and the gorgeously saturated colors! :)
2 Oct 2009 2:32pm
Neat capture. Marvelous leading line; draws you right up through the photograph. Love the red. Excellent quote.
2 Oct 2009 2:45pm
Spot on on every detail. The angle, the line leading trough the image and the red color is great.
2 Oct 2009 3:42pm
I know you have a preference for B&W but its nice to see you work in colour, this still packs a melancholy hit.
2 Oct 2009 3:43pm

looked like read beads of a necklace to me.
somehow the mood is less of hope, but of.. longing. the water's run dry, nothing to keep it afloat.
really like the colours, light (water reflection) and the lines in this photo

4 Oct 2009 5:36pm
@John Masters: Thanks John. Maybe just a little as the wave kept rushing up onto the shore :)
Quelle géante a perdu sur la plage son collier de perles rouge ?

8 Oct 2009 10:44am
wow! not sure what i'm looking at ... but i like it! looks like a bunch of rotting red peppers! but i'm sure its a buoy or something
8 Oct 2009 12:12pm
@crash: No rotting veggies here...but bouys, absolutely :)
Great composition... very well placed objects (deliberately?) although I'm not sure what they are ;-) Great colours
8 Oct 2009 1:01pm
@mark / one way photo: Thank you Mark. They are buoys that float in the water, although the tide was out so they were just sitting on the shore :)
Excelente captura. Un contraste magnífico. Muy bien de texturas.
8 Oct 2009 5:35pm

19 Oct 2009 9:10pm
Hope Floats, Joy Rises, and this Photo is amazing! The red buoy on it's own a great picture - having it as a repeating linear unit - very eye catching!
8 Jan 2010 2:58am
That's cool and remarquable again (so scarce to see colors here) and I like it a lot of course, love that oversaturated red gainst that dark sand (almost looking like concrete). Thanks God, we're not lost. :-)
30 Apr 2010 7:45am
thats a really nice photo with the over saturation of the red!
