    I’d love to have a sip of that cool drink…


  2. wow , very nice :)


  3. Lovely composition and serenely calming.


    • I think it does capture the feeling of the moment quite well, actually. A beautifully colored sunset over the darkening sea, a thunderstorm in the distance just to give it extra drama, the warm evening air on the terrace, a mellow glass of wine… :-)


  4. Now that is called ‘focus’. :)


  5. I’m on my way out to buy a bottle of wine.

  9. Yes indeed! I love the way the gold in the wineglass is echoed in the sky – great shot – you must have been inspired :-)


  10. While I appreciate all your NYC shots, I am a big fan of the Gulf and will be there soon. Thanks for the foretaste of what is coming.

    Beautiful example of both focus and minimalism. I love it.


  13. great focus – love the gold reflection :) and although I prefer red (wine) it just wouldn’t have worked here…

  32. Who would have thought that the sunset, the water, and the thunderstorm and the glass of wine would make such a spectacular photograph! Well done! Without the wine it would have been a nice but not spectacular photo!
