Following up on yesterday’s image, The Flag, here is a wider view of the early morning scene at Boynton Beach in Florida. The lifeguard tower stands poised over the oceanfront in this serene image.
Happy New Year to everyone – have a wonderful time ringing in the new year, I’m looking forward to new adventures and new images in 2011!
Minutes after sunrise on the beach in Boynton Beach, FL, the lifeguard on duty posted this singular red flag in the sand. This was part of their notification system to let beach visitors know that the water wasn’t swimmable. I thought it was an awesome scene, almost like a moon landscape with the American Flag posted in the sand…and believe it or not, it was quite cold. I think the temperature was in the mid 30s, and the ocean was fogging in the early morning light…and the cool colors of the ocean with the warm clouds in the distance and the starkly red flag made this a solid shot for me.
