There are some places that never photo as big as they feel. And you can't even describe the feeling you had in that place. When you remember it, music suddenly seemed to be playing (orchestra to go along with the crashing waves and make you feel like you're in a movie). A feeling of surprise mingled with admiration (Oxford Dictionary).
And it feels really good to run across other people's photos of the same pretty place you've seen because you think, "Oh hey, I've felt that wonder, too."
