There's something mystical about this image. The idea of just paddling across the smooth, calm sea towards the far off sunset is pretty appealing I guess.
There's also something about the family that is striking in this image. The father with his two children. One child sitting on the paddle board and being cared for by his father; the other, older child able to do her own paddling. It's a reminder about both the needs and capacity of children. How quickly they grow and become able to do things for themselves, although still needing some support and guidance.
There's also something about the idea of the sunset that is attractive here. The end of another day, sun setting on what has been. Leaving the day behind. Letting it be. Enabling a new day to come tomorrow.
The reflections of the clouds and sun on the clear, calm water is also interesting. A reminder perhaps that nothing exists in isolation. Everything is connected to something else. Some things are even mirrored or reflected so that it seems they are magnified, doubled, enhanced.
The silhouetted images send a message of mystique. Who are these people? What do they do when they're not paddle boarding? When did they begin to do this? What is it like to be out there facing the sun, drawing out the last bit of sunlight to make the most of it?
The colors in this image are incredibly calming, the blues, purples and yellows seem to come together to present a calm and casual image, perfect for some relaxation or even as a mirror to the soul.
