Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

Came upon this deviation by accident. Suddenly remembered I HAD seen it before and, not only :+fav:ed it, but wrote a poem about it: [link]

Always fun to revist these things.

wow, all your artwork is really amazing!! this one is very beautiful!!!

my names Jeny and i'm borrowing my friends account right now cuz i forgot my password, and i was wondering...could i use this picture for something? i won't take any credit for it and i won't call it my own! for my art class we've been assigned to pick a scenery of some sort of nature/outdoors. all my classmates just look on google and get all these pictures that anyone can get. but i want to be unique! so i was wondering if you'd allow me to use this picture as reference to draw a painting that no one else in my class will have!! please comment my friends page or reply to this message whether or not you ok with that!!! thanks!!

Oh, I think I want to go to Finland. Your photographs make it even more magical, too! :)

& I can't wait to get my DSLR... a Canon as well. Oh, the wait is tantalizing!

Hey it's me again (ok it was a while ago, but meh). Anyway I told you I was going to write a poem about this picture and I have. It's called "Sands of Paradise"

Sands of Paradise

Gazing out into the skies
I sit here and I just exist
There is no material value here
Only the joy of living

The sand is warm under my feet
It gives my tired body a place to lie
On this bed of grinded stone I may rest
And allow the sinful world to pass me by

The ocean is tamed and calm
As it gently brushes against the sand
It sings to me a lullabye so beautiful
An aquatic paradise

Within this ocean lies five stones
Placed there by a force unknown
They are sat there so perfectly in position
Unlike the World, they make absolute sense

I sit upon the largest stone and I look out to the horizon
The ocean and the Heavens meet with lovers embrace
The purples and the reds of the skies dance
Like a married couple on their wedding night

I smile as I sit on my stone
I hug the air around me
I lose myself in this place of purity
For this is truely where Heaven begins...

Wow, that is a really beautiful poem. Just reading it made me imagine what the view would be like, and it fits perfectly to the photo.

Thank you. :handshake:

nice, quiet and minimalistic. I think I saw something alike on a hasselblad catalog years ago. But I can't swear on it anymore....
