Lux et Mare: Sea Marble

in one of the coves of eastern Gozitan coast (Dwejra, Gozo)

sea marble... see marvel... sea marvel...
nature never ceases to amaze us
a tableau of colors painted by the invisible yet powerful hand
of the sea and the sun on the smooth, hard rocks
rendering a picture of undiluted beauty

This photo was taken off the coast of Gozo. The minerals on the rocks and the refraction of light create a bluish-pink hue of the sea water. This, combined with being in a moving small local boat while taking the picture probably created the effect. I fancy it to be like a painting on canvas... or a delicious piece of marble cake (when my stomach grumbles :))
