As I'm sat one cold and rainy afternoon, looking back at photographs from far flung and breathtakingly beautiful places, I say to myself "Why are you running from that sea?...embrace it!"
To be fair, part of the joy of the sea is movement. The constant ebb and flow of the waves makes us want to jump over the surf, dive in or just sit, watch and think.
This beautiful beach is on the southern coast of Barbados, where the ocean outshines the sky in the eye-wateringly blue stakes.
