i ♥ faces ~ week 29 - beaches

Here is my weekly entry for the www.iheartfaces.com contest this week. The theme this week is "Beaches". I am so sad that this theme came just weeks before our vacation to Seaside. Bummer!... So I am entering this picture I took of the kiddos last month hanging out at Seahurst located on the Pugest Sound. My kids love going here. There are so many treasures to find... starfish, crab, all sorts of anemone, barnacles, and much more! Plus... this was such a gorgous day and the clouds were amazing!

You are seriously talented.
I love everything about this.
EVERYTHING.
From the scattering of clouds, right down to the textured beach and the flash of red that draws your eye right to the kids.

Yeah the clouds were gorgeous that day! You have got to give me some lessons on how to get the sky to look like that without having your subjects be to dark. I am constantly blowing out my sky and I HATE it!! You have submitted yet another winning photograph! Great job!
