black and white Wednesday - by the sea

sea Grace color WM-2

Lately we've been dreaming of warmer weather,
 and how nice it would be to add some sun and sand.
I found this image of Grace taken 6 months ago on our vacation to Mexico.
As I recall it was the last night of our trip, the sun was setting
 and had just dropped below the horizon (behind me),
the light was low but there was still a little bit left.
I love this one because of her pose (entirely her idea) and expression.
Makes me feel like I'm right there again with my girl. :)
