Monterey Beach - An Improvisation Exercise

A picture is worth a thousand words, or, in this case, a thousand notes.

There's something about beautiful nature imagery that inspires me so I played around with just two chords on the piano - A Major 7 and F# minor 7 and came up with this little improvisation.

The chords are in open position and I use my right hand to play melody notes further up the keyboard. I also hit octave bass notes near the end.
