Let's Hit the Beach - Skywatch Friday Post from Anzio, Italy

This shot was taken in Anzio, Italy in February 2009. I love the composition, the swirl of the beach and water and of course the gorgeous sky over the Mediterranean Sea. Do click to enlarge.

Be sure to take a peek at other SKYWATCH FRIDAY posts this week. This meme is hosted by: Klaus | Sandy | Ivar | Wren | Fishing Guy| Louise who do a fab job. We had over 330 participants in Sky Watch last week.

Lovely shot. Amazingly, I almost posted a similar one today, only mine was on Lake Ontario. It's the first time I've ever thought one of the Great Lakes might look a little like the Mediterranean! LOL

This does look beautiful. The waves gently swishing over the rocks... how amazing is that foam that collects on the side... so pretty indeed!
