Beyond. Do you have a photo which invites the viewer to look beyond? Are there hidden depths in the background? Is the focal point just a framing for the rest of the picture? If it’s not clear why we should look beyond, tell us! Lead us through the story in your photo. (Sara Rosso)

Here’s my interpretation of this week’s challenge. This shot was taken from the upper deck as we cruised out of Fort Myers Beach sailing for Key West.

There are many layers to this shot that invite the viewer to look beyond.  The bow of the fishing boat on the right only partially named, then the red channel marker that leads the eye beyond to the turquoise bridge, to other boat traffic, to the buildings beyond the bridge, then … oh! Wait a moment, back up.  What is that near the sand bar in the channel?
