Photos: Sauntering to Coral Beach

Yesterday for the first time I was at Coral Beach with the tide low (and still going out) and thus able to walk across to Lampay Island. Found myself contemplating compositions featuring Coral Beach that don’t involve its characteristic curve but include the hill, and wondering if the location would still be clear without it being in the painting’s title.

Don’t think that composition rule about adding a splash of red in a painting meant this.

There’s no mistaking which is Coral Beach. That’s Lampay Island on the left but the tide wasn’t yet low enough to expose the causeway.
