Reflections

'To throw back light (or sound)', 'to think quietly and calmly', 'to give back or exhibit as an image, likeness'. Thank you, Merriam-Webster. I like the abstract power of reflections. Every image straight from the camera.

Beach

The rain and grey clouds have subsided, there's some blue to be detected in the sky. The shore is a great place to be. Selfie!

Lagoon

Lots of small fishing boats at San Gines Lagoon in Arrecife. The lagoon is surrounded by a boardwalk with lots of restaurants and terraces, 75% op which have gone bankrupt during the pandemic. A very sad sight.

Beach (2)

Waves trying to conquer the beach, clouds reflecting, bubbling and hissing sounds from foam that slowly start collapsing. Mesmerising sight.

Harbour

From luxury yacht to dinghy, they contribite to a colourful and graphical display in the water in any marina. This picture is featured in the Reflections issue of AbstractAZZI.

Harbour (2)

The more I concentrate on the reflections of white sailboats, the larger the contrast is going to be. It is just a matter of waiting for the wind to pick up or lie down.

Harbour (3)

After a while you start recognising what the wind does with the ripples in the water. Changing position for just a few metres can mean a very different image.

Harbours or more rewarding than ports. The sailboats I came across in marinas are all in good nick and that stands for clean pictures. The water in ports is also murkier and often polluted with oil. It wouldn't be too difficult to fill an entire page with these reflections.

Alright, one more, and that's it. It wouldn't be too difficult to fill an entire page after a few hours at a posh marina like this one.
