After looking at the picture, I noticed the beautiful shapes of the crashing waves plunging towards the beach. I feel open and astonished at the beauty of nature and man’s inevitable influence on it. Now, looking at the photo, I feel a renewed sense of hope rather than simple happiness because of the realization that there is endless beauty in the world and hopefully many more people to appreciate it.
