This is precious! It looks like a photograph, so much the details come to life.Thanks.

I did think it was a painting, but after checking the file info on Wikimedia it seems that it is a photocrome picture. A photo of a painting? I'm not sure now. It doesn't look real enough to just be a photo directly taken of the beach.

In any case it's a charming scene.
