"After the Tide has Gone Out"
  
This piece was inspired by a walk along the beach near where I live.  Whilst admiring the beauty around me, I also noticed all the rubbish left behind by thoughtless people who do not realize the damage they are doing to our environment or do not care.
  
By coincidence, after I had finished this piece, there was an item on the news about all the plastic and rubbish which is being washed up on the tiny Pacific island called Midway.  It is killing all the albatrosses that live there as they are mistakenly eating the plastic thinking it is food.
