168 by simbion-stock 168 by simbion-stock
.

edit: Since this got a daily deviation I feel like I owe every one an explanation. This is a stock image, feel free to use it. The photo was taken at Mayflower Beach, Dennis (Cape Cod), Massachusetts. I took this photo by mistake while changing the settings on the camera. Even though I screwed up, I thought it looked kind of neat and thought that others might be able to use it. There is another version of this photo in my gallery where the horizon is strait and the flash wasnít used. [link]
Iím not very good with photography. Seven months ago I had never even held a digital camera. Here it is six months later and I still donít know how to use the darn thing correctly.

Thanks to and for the feature. I hope this photo is useful as a stock image and thanks for taking the time to look. :)

the strong coldness - we call Zamhareir - might kill as fire.

we got to use relations between water and fire, but now i see ice and fire.
nice work!

It's definitely the intense contrast and saturation that makes this better than the "right" one. A little bit of creative cropping and no one will know it's tilted.
