The estuary


Wikipedia says "Estuaries form a transition zone between river environments and ocean environments and are subject to both marine influences, such as tides, waves, and the influx of saline water; and riverine influences, such as flows of fresh water and sediment. The inflow of both seawater and freshwater provide high levels of nutrients in both the water column and sediment, making estuaries among the most productive natural habitats in the world."

  1. I like the moodiness of the scene at twilight. People forget about estuaries sometimes in favour for the ocean beach but they have a peacefulness that I like.
