The second part of the title comes from the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

This one's really dark, or maybe it's my screen? Going for the arty look, huh, with another good angle on the vase here, Phil

I tried a number of different exposures on all of these, Brian, but for some reason, I often prefer a more dark look for my own things. With this set, giving too much exposure to the foreground seemed to detract from the colors in the sky, which is was I was mostly after. Well, at first, anyway. Thanks for stopping in with the comments.

The title would be possible also from Charles Bukowski; especially with items on the pic looking like an empty bottle.

I'll take your word on that one, polytropos.

Amazing that such a thing could appear unbroken on the beach.

It does seem a bit unlikely, doesn't it, Lisa. I was pleased to have it as a nice prop.

I left it for the next feller, Larry. Fits of inspiration are hard to find, so it'll be put to good use, I'm sure.
