BlackSand by *autumn-ethereal Suggester writes: "That's just completely insane, the water looks amazing and the black stones are a very nice contrast" ( Suggested by PatrickRuegheimer and Featured by kkart )
:iconclairclairsky:
Mad. Simply amazing. This is such a well captured shot I have yet to take it all in. This is something that I could look at over and over again.

Wherever this beach is, I want to visit it! The contrasting colours of the sand, stones and water mix extremely well together and it looks like the water is being sucked out away from the beach.

This picture simply makes me feel... something inside... something that I cannot fully explain. I feel that this picture has a really deep meaning or at least it does for the person that took the picture.

Great job. Excellently done.

the great tension between the black rocks and the white-washed water give this (yet another) waterfront pic the right edge.
thanks.

i love the black and white contrast, how dark the rocks are on the left side, and the white water trailing through to the right.
this is breathtaking.

that is so beautiful! The water, or fog, or whatever it actually is, looks like even more sand on top of the black sand. Or maybe combed cotton. Amazing picture.

This has to be one of the best pictures I've ever seen! Fantastic balance between the smooth water and the slightly porous surface texture on the stones.

I would love to use something like that as a wallpaper! And there's not many pictures I think that about!

Well done, adding you to my watch right now!
