A Proposal on the Beach

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

I was shooting the rocks at Victoria beach when I accidently witnessed a young man proposing to his girl! I had a telephoto lens with me and took a dozen of shots that turned out to be nice. Just three of us stayed until dusk on the beach... One was shooting long exposures, other two were kissing constantly :-)

Hi Elena! A very impressive image! And yes, the inclusion of the human element enhances even this already dramatic scene! Great observation and great result! Many friendly greetings! Anton Trötscher
