I took this today. You don’t have to look at it.

    Wow, that looks like an awesome place to be.

    It makes me want to go back to Cuba. The beaches and the scenery was so beautiful … the poverty, however, was not…

    Is there a way to express profound gratitude
    and guenuine thankfullness
    without sounding like a suck-up
    and risk the dreaded end-of-the-line?

    that looks like A LOT of fun haha

  12. #17 by B_A_B_S on 2011.07.25 - 4:07 pm

    Wow. Lovely view you have there.

  13. #18 by HighFlier on 2011.07.25 - 2:21 pm

    This photo has fantastic colors. WOW! Last time I was on a beach anything close to this was down on Puerto Rico’s west cost a few happy new years ago and I got burnt like a lobster on new years day. I’ll never do that again. The surfer looks all alone out there but sure is having a blast. The beach and ocean look so inviting.

  14. #19 by debbilyn on 2011.07.25 - 2:09 pm

    I want to be There….beautiful!

  15. #20 by DavyRocket on 2011.07.25 - 1:58 pm

    Man, I wish the water was that clear here in North Carolina (Carolina Beach)

  16. #21 by Daniuru on 2011.07.25 - 1:48 pm

    Very beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  17. #22 by Riot_Girl_1 on 2011.07.25 - 12:02 pm

    That’s beautiful! I’ve tried skim boarding, definitely not a sport for the uncoordinated. Makes for a nice picture though

  18. #23 by Uni Crystal on 2011.07.25 - 11:49 am

    Great picture MW hope all is going well and looking forward to get back into world. Do have one question for the ones that had neighbourhoods when there closed will we still have them when there reopens?

  19. #24 by DodgeBoy101 on 2011.07.25 - 11:38 am

    Ok, so i have been offline for a little while, and today was told that There was back up and running by a friend, and went to the There.com web site and is all said it was opened again, yet i cant seem to figure out how to re-claim my old avie, so im asking
    now, how do u re-claim old avie(s)? Cuz im feeling a bit noobish today, lol ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. #25 by jimony on 2011.07.25 - 11:08 am

    Is this where you caught the squid?

  21. #26 by Francis_7 on 2011.07.25 - 10:45 am

    What a beautiful day! It brought a smile to my face. Since starting to play There in 2003 I ahve developed a longing to visit a tropical islalnd someday. I think the sun may be shinging outside here today, but there are no rainbows in sight.

    Very beautiful!! Boy, I would love to sit around and see that everyday. Instead I am stuck here in Texas with 100+ heat everyday, and no rain for 6 weeks.

    • #41 by Seg_Vio on 2011.07.25 - 2:10 pm

      I’ll trade that for my humid hell known as Memphis! Even the bugs sweat here! lol

  33. #42 by A happy person (RockinWolfman) (At the end of the line):( on 2011.07.25 - 6:28 am

    Thought it was a beach in there. It looks just like it!

    Mr.Wilson Can I ask you why There will be 18+ ?

    • #59 by DavyRocket on 2011.07.25 - 9:47 am

      You can ask all you want. However I would not expect an answer since that questions has already be answered 10,000 times already. Seek, and you shall find what your looking for!

    • #60 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.25 - 10:49 am

      Robert,
      Read the previous 4,000 posts.
      That question has been asked about 600 times.

    • #61 by Eating, Sputters, Pneumonia, ect. on 2011.07.26 - 8:01 am

      I’ll answer for you.

    Leica…….so jealous

  51. #63 by SaltySilver on 2011.07.25 - 3:02 am

    The sand color is really nice. It’s interesting how sand is different all over the world.

  52. #64 by toufovou on 2011.07.25 - 2:50 am

    That place is like 15km away from my place. Taken November 2010 with an old Nokia E51 cell phone…

      I went to this link and spam popped up that said “Brittany Spears Lapdance”…… not good.

  53. #66 by JonmiChel on 2011.07.25 - 2:29 am

    Wow. awesome beach. There aren’t any kind of beaches like these in here Barcelona ! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  54. #67 by Okalnix on 2011.07.25 - 2:20 am

    A lott of feet staps in the sand.
    The rainbow is great to have it in this photo.

    very happy to see you’re actually getting some down time! … or is this the view outside the shop window? XD as excited as we all are I hope all of you there who are working so hard to get There up and running again remember to take breaks and have some time away from the desk! You still need your weekends.

    All the best.

  58. #71 by deleight on 2011.07.25 - 1:35 am

    Beautiful!

  59. #72 by Kayleigh Lace on 2011.07.25 - 1:22 am

    The rainbow is beautiful. The action shot in front is very cool…

  60. #73 by YankeeintheSouth on 2011.07.25 - 1:21 am

    Much nicer update! lol

  61. #74 by xeroxcopy on 2011.07.25 - 1:05 am

    Kind of feel bad for that surfer.

    There’s not only – nobody to surf with, he can’t even catch a decent wave!

    Guess the rainbow scared them all away…

    • #75 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.25 - 8:15 am

      It’s a skimboard, not a surfboard.

      • #76 by Basya on 2011.07.25 - 9:47 am

        Umm… Love the pic! But what is a skimboard? I think I know what a surfboard is and certainly am familiar with hoverboards!

      • #77 by jimony on 2011.07.25 - 12:12 pm

        I think he meant to say they were testing a new hoverboard.

      • #78 by Seg_Vio on 2011.07.25 - 2:06 pm

        A simboard requires no wave, you just hop on and the inertia carries you. You use them near the shore line.

      • #79 by SoledadNegativa on 2011.07.25 - 3:08 pm

        Skimboards are used at shore right after the wave comes in and theres only a few inches of water, nice toy if you happen to be in a waveless ocean.

      • #80 by AgapeLove on 2011.07.26 - 8:25 am

        Are there any 2% boards? Sorry just my usual blond and senior moment question ๐Ÿ™‚

  62. #81 by MikeCesar on 2011.07.25 - 1:00 am

    WOW! Excellent shot! Congrats!

  63. #82 by dakotaman on 2011.07.25 - 12:31 am

    MW: May I ask what you shot it with (SLR, point and shoot, etc) and if you used HDR or other processing? Just an incessantly curious photographer….

    Great Picture, BTW and beautiful timing!

    dakotaman

    • #83 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.25 - 12:37 am

      M9 35mm lens. NO processing whatsoever.

      • #84 by Jonathan on 2011.07.25 - 1:26 am

        Jealous of your Leica ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Looks like theres something on your lens! But great photo!

      • #85 by lookout on 2011.07.25 - 5:22 am

        Wow! That is incredible timing given no processing. Beautiful shot! Looks like somewhere off Kauai….

      • #86 by HoverboatPilot on 2011.07.25 - 7:30 am

        Did you get the silver with ostrich or the limited edition titanium versions? ๐Ÿ˜€ Very nice camera though, I like the classic look!

      • #87 by Andrew Harris on 2011.07.25 - 10:38 am

        You got some dirt in the lens. Leica M9’s are sweet. Love the old film format!

      • #88 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.25 - 11:09 am

        Where? I keep looking but I don’t see it…

      • #89 by jimony on 2011.07.25 - 12:11 pm

        There are some spots in the sky and one near the bottom of the rainbow, if someone were really picky.

      • #90 by Jonathan on 2011.07.25 - 1:07 pm

        I’ve circled the ‘bits’ that I can see.

      • #91 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.25 - 3:15 pm

        Thanks! I’ll take a look!

      • #92 by Deleight on 2011.07.25 - 1:12 pm

        Those spots could easily be birds

      • #93 by Rakja on 2011.07.26 - 5:49 am

        The spots are proof that you really took them! Don’t change them a bit! It’s like a camera signature. :))

  64. #94 by DJHussey on 2011.07.25 - 12:24 am

    I bet the There.com HQ is at the end of that rainbow!

  65. #95 by Skye on 2011.07.25 - 12:10 am

    You’re a full rainbow shy of a meme.

  66. #96 by TherePercy on 2011.07.25 - 12:05 am

    Very nice action shot ๐Ÿ™‚

  67. #97 by Buddy Schreiber on 2011.07.25 - 12:02 am

    Is this off Laguna?

    • #98 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.25 - 12:08 am

      In a sense, yes. VERY far off Laguna.

      • #99 by jimony on 2011.07.25 - 12:09 pm

        It looks like Half Moon Bay to me.

      • #100 by Dean Caballero ( Bumpin42 ) on 2011.07.25 - 12:57 pm

        Omg jimony i have`nt been to half moon bay in years, I wonder if that Big old willow tree is still there?

      • #101 by jimony on 2011.07.26 - 1:43 am

        I was there about a decade ago, for about half an hour, so I wouldn’t remember the tree.
        But you could look it up on Google Earth and see if the tree is there I am sure.

      • #102 by Tallie Bombastic on 2011.07.29 - 2:37 am

        its gorgeous

  68. #103 by Percepti0n on 2011.07.24 - 11:44 pm

    Can’t wait to see a beach like that with a rainbow in the sky and surfing, jetskiing, and sailboating available in There.com some day. *hint* ๐Ÿ˜›
