I reckon that if that image was cropped so the right side was removed (make it portrait not landscape) people would have a real hard time knowing that it was not a seashore. The way the snow is on the ground on the lower left is exactly like a receding wave.
That's really interesting, thanks for the comments. I actually thought it was a seascape myself when I saw it out of the corner of my eye (while multi-tasking.) Funny what our eyes tell us sometimes. If anyone is interested in a different version of that pic, it's the first one in my Flickr link below.
