Low tide exploring is a favorite pastime of beach visitors. Many interesting areas are accessible only at low tide. Some get so involved with their exploring that they get caught unaware of the incoming tide. Most of the time this just means getting a little wet but it can be dangerous. This is an example of “aerial perspective.” The distance is painted with less detail and lighter colors and the detail and color intensity are increased as you move to the front of the painting creating perspective without buildings or telephone poles going off in the distance.
