PS I finally snagged an Etsy treasury spot - come check out this gorgeous collection highlighting Israeli creativity at its finest. (A treasury is a collection of items available for purchase around Etsy - it highlights items from other sellers according to whatever criteria catches your eye, in this case I've chosen to feature Israeli sellers. Be sure to check it out quickly, it's only valid for three days and there are some fabulous finds in there.)

Don't know what an Etsy Treasury Spot is, but I know this photo is a treasure. Very nice!

You keep saying that it's not a tropical island but you post all these pictures of beaches and gorgeous sandy places and I really am beginning to not believe you.

Annie said...

Okay. Just about now, I would love to be LIVING on one of these sailboats.

Thom said...

I love sailboats...this is an awesome picture :)

Leora said...

Excellent photo. Did you do anything to it, or did it naturally have those blue and gray accents with a simple color palette? Great sense of depth. Love the wispy tall sails.

Robin said...

I boosted the contrast slightly but that's it - it was very hazy that day so the SOOC shot was a bit more washed out looking.

Frida said...

A beautiful place. I have lots of snow and -10C here in Sweden. Wish I was there.

Daryl said...

Super shot .. off to see what an Esty Treasury spot is

Janet said...

So beautiful! Congrats!

Tammy said...

Gorgeous photo! I'm going to go check out the Esty spot next!

Robin said...

An Etsy Treasury, mine in this case, is a collection of items for sale that you curate yourself, according to your own criteria. It's fun, good exposure, and VERY competitive. Spots are limited and go within seconds when they come up. It took me weeks to grab this one and it's only valid for three days - so be sure to check it out quickly!

A great shot again Robin:-)

Jennifer said...

Love your photo - so tranquil looking, which is just what I needed today - some tranquility.

And your Treasury is wonderful. Love those etched guitar picks. And she had them in sterling silver as well.

Terri said...

I really like this one Robin!!! Makes me want to sail away and forget my troubles. Beautiful.

Jientje said...

Lovely picture. What could be better than a desert land next to a blue sea?

catsynth said...

Hmm, and I thought *I* was posting the "see how nice and warm it looks in the winter" post this week :)

In any case, beautiful image looking out at the sea.

Sukhmandir Kaur said...

It's a lovely photograph. I have to say I almost prefer looking at boats sailing then being in one because it takes wind LOL

xmasdolly said...

You definitely have an eye for a good picture.

caite said...

oh, I wish I was on one of those boats, racing across the water...

SandyCarlson said...

This is a wonderful, wonderful photo. I wish I could feel that water around my ankles and try to attempt a shot even half as good as that.

sheila said...

Stunning shot! What I would give to be on the beach right this minute.

Indrani said...

Great shot Robin!

Ms. Latina said...

Ahhh that looks so warm! I desperately need a vacation to someplace that looks like your photo! Beautiful!

DanaB said...

Wow! Love it...specially how the boats in the middle part stand out so clearly...stunning!

My gosh to be able to spend some time on that water, just wonderful Robin, You'll have us all jealous!

Ulrica said...

I really, really longing for the summer now. Here in Sweden it's really cold right now. No boats on the sea. A really nice pic. :)
