All great scenes at the shore don’t always have to include the sand, waves and the ocean. There are always great views to discover on the rivers that lead to the beaches and the ocean.
I believe that this photograph has many elements that make this photograph interesting: colors, winding River, boat, dock, clouds, buildings, high grass, etc. A lot is going on in the photograph and it takes a little time to absorb all of it.
I would have loved to own the house in the photograph as it looks so peaceful in the scenery.
