    Darn, El, you are really good! I was at a family reunion the Friday and Saturday before Father's Day, and left Sunday morning. I was traveling
with family members and had no car during the little free time I had. :-(

    you know, if you were down here again and didn't try to get in touch i'm going to be a bit upset. :)

and 'pareidolia'... might be a good idea for a challenge theme.

    Thanks for comments and votes. It was worth getting up at 6:15AM on a Sunday to shoot this from my hotel window!!!

    This really brings back the scent of the salt sea air. What a beautiful location for an evening walk.

    Now that's a smell I'd like to re-acquaint myself with :-)

    Nice view, but no special scent comes in my mind, when I see it.

    Nice early morning shot. I like the sunlight lining the tops of the clouds

    An appealing scene, well-presented, but doesn't communicate much scent of the sea to me. Closer, more obvious breaking waves with washed-up seaweed, etc., would do so more strongly.

    Qixil - Your imagination is quite vivid! You may enjoy these cloud pareidolia pictures. I'm sure some are fakes, but you'll probably enjoy looking. https://www.google.com/search?q=cloud+Pareidolia&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwit8vGm_9bUAhXMWz4KHYZvDc8Q7AkITg&biw=1920&bih=1045

    Hang on - is that cloud formation in the shape of mickey mouse sniffing some cheese and throwing his hand back in disgust. Or is it me?

    I've never really thought of sandy beaches as being smelly (except Barcelona city). But show me some rock pools, or a pebble beach and I'm with you. Nice shot if you ignore my nit=picking.

    Such a beautiful serene image! Doesn't quite scream out "smell", but you get my vote for the beauty of the shot. And if I concentrate hard enough, I do smell the ocean!

    A lovely calm photograph that evokes the smell of clean salt air. Beautiful backlighting of the clouds and nicely placed couple.

    Beautiful photo. I love the rays sneaking through the clouds and the gentle palette. The figures add a sense of scale and an emotional connection. In my faves.
