[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The weather is warm,
A soft breeze is blowing over you
You lie down on a beach chair and look up
You see a gently swaying beautiful coconut tree

You feel that you are in a dream
From which presently you will wake up
Amid the grey, the cold, and the snow
Of a Canadian winter

Taken at Akumal beach, Mayan Riviera, Mexico

Hi Sunil,
The photo does convey a sense of warmth, and nice POV. But I would've preferred a vertcial angle. ANd perhaps just a bit more of the leaves to be included. I do like the colours.
