Fellow photo editor Jim Seida often comments on pictures you can hear. I bet the scene captured in this frame sounded great.
This picture also reminds me again of how what we've experienced in the past becomes part of what we see and appreciate in pictures. This picture jumped out at me because I once stumbled upon a cello being played in a big archway of a centuries-old courtyard. The mellow sound of the cello was perfect for the time of day, when a muted, pastel sunset was lighting up the old stones. I appreciated the moment of random beauty coming together. I wonder if some beach walkers encountered this bass player and thought the same thing?
