A very interesting choice given today. Wonderful photo and a stark contrast to the photos of Dec 7 70 years ago. The events of that day pulling the United States into WWII - 418,500 lives sacrificed. Total estimated lives lost between 50 and 70 million - or 2.5% of the world's population.

Millions sacrificed throughout the world - many of us not alive, but we have the freedom today to pursue this hobby and make peaceful photos of a beach like this because of their sacrifice.

Don't know if it was coincidence or plan to select this photo for today but I find it very appropriate.

JohnG, it was a coincidence. However, now that you've posted this, I agree.

Even the interesting landscape photo, but is not too exaggerated treatment of this rock? It seems unnaturally bright. I think that it ought to in this section was to write Anyway nice to watch.
