No Ads for Now
As you might noticed, there are no more ads on my site. For the last two month I had them on to see what type of money it will bring. Even though I had no control over the type of ads, had no control over where they are shown, I just wanted to see if it will bring at least enough to cover the web hosting costs. Well, the results are in and I have to say that the earnings were pathetic, a few dollars every month. Almost embarrassing how little money their ads are paying. It seems like the site would need to have ten times more visitors to make measly 20-25 dollars per month, which would then cover all the different costs I have with running this blog.
So for now I turned it off. I feel like those ads were getting in the way on the blog for very little value. Ten or so bucks that it earned will have to seat and wait till they make this service a bit more flexible for me to control how to show those intrusive ads and till I have many more visitors. Not sure when that day will come.
The Most Beautiful Beach in the World?
We are back with Friday Mystery Photos, and today are traveling to this beautiful place. Doesn’t it look like the most beautiful sand beach in the world? It sure did when I hiked in that area and came to this view. I wonder if it is actually have some rating on the “most beautiful list”, can’t seem to find it. But of course you guys have to identify it first!
I took this photo with my Lumia 1020 phone. The high resolution image is nice 7712 pixels wide, pretty darn nice for big screen displays.
Saturday Update: A few folks suggested that it is in Maine and that it could be at Acadia National Park, but no one actually identified the beach by its name, which is Sand Beach! Till next Friday!

I have no idea where it is, but I want to be there now.
Somewhere Pacific Northwest? I don’t know… but I’ve never seen that combination of beach, evergreen, and deciduous forest before. Nice photo, too, with a phone camera! Just goes to show it’s the photographer, not the camera. 🙂
My guess is the coast of Maine somewhere. Great photo.
yep, it is in Maine
By any chance, is it on the coast of Mt. Desert Island somewhere near Bass Harbor or Southwest Harbor?
The rocks are making me think Maine as well, maybe in the vicinity of Acadia NP?
and the name of the place? it is actually mentioned in my post 🙂
Thanks for the information on the adds.
Looks like the northwest area? I never noted ads on your site, must be the ad block.
Beautiful photo of Maine thanks by Judybirds because I don’t know it by myself
A short answer to your question: no, it doesn’t, to me. I’d rate the southern stretches of the west coast of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland ahead of that and also one off St Anne’s in the Scillies in southwest England/Cornwall. Never mind – still very nice, particularly the river.
Looks almost like NY State, like the Adirondack s, except with the beach it must be coastal. So my broad guess is…Maine.
No idea but it looks very inviting.
Is it at Bucks Beach, Tahoe?
You should photography Australian beaches. You won’t believe yourself when you do :P~~
Thanks for getting rid of the ads. I wish I could keep them from my free site. Love Sand Beach!
