Looking back on the summer of 2017 again… waves crashing onto the beach near Ksamil, Albania. Yes, the water really is that color! The movement of the clouds and the sky mimics the movement of the ocean. The cliff stands alone as a pillar of strength against the elements… it is shaped by the environment, the same way you or I are.
