The fact that the water which is red, is a very interesting phenomenon. It seems that the image has been completely invented in the summer.

PHILIPPE from Montreal, Canada

Very nice. I like your "degrade" of colours, following the waves. Simple composition of image, as I like.
For a suggestion: since it's a minimalist composition, I would have removed the rock, on top right. Because the simplest an image is, the more any tiny element has a strong effect. So in an image like this, everyting that's in the frame, should be there because specifically wanted. But it's just to be fussy in a helpful way; the photo is superb!
