Dear Photographer June Feature- Landscape Speaks

Dear Photographer - Landscape Speaks

I LOVE the Dear Photographer Community! There are so many talented women who share so many beautiful vulnerable images. It is always an honor and pleasure to share space with so many incredibly talented souls. This photo was taken at sunrise in Fort Lauderdale. It was a quiet morning on the beach and there was this beautiful African wedding taking place right there at the sunrise on the beach. It was a beautiful thing to witness. Love is an incredible thing. You are love and so am I. Here is my interpretation of letting the "Landscape Speak".  Thank you Dear Photographer for the feature!
