BEST VIEWED LARGE
Slowly meandering along the sands of the gulf, the warmth of the early morning sun causes me to realize, once again, that I live in Paradise!!!!
Looking out to sea, I notice the old pilings of Naples first pier off in the distance. Excitement builds as the sun shimmers on the old wood and the bobbing water……. I quicken my step as I recognize that the rising sun moves on a time frame of its own and IF I must get a few shots in, it must be now!!!! Nearly to my appointed place (in my minds eye), I plant my feet in the sand and surf and raise my camera and begin to search the water edge and beyond. What is that on the tops of the timber??? Dissatisfied in my position now, I move forward. Then I see………… on every piling there is a bird!!!! There are Pelicans, Ibis, Herons perched and doing their “own thing”!!!!
The next hour flew by as I move about, relaxed in my choice of perspective as I know that the birds wouldn’t be leaving their spots in a hurry.
Gifts can be found in the most unusual ways…. from the Boreal Forest, to Mt. Tremblant, to Nyhvan……. it is the photographers eye that presents the image as presents to the world.
Every shot different but the reasons are the same…. we want to paint the world with the moments that shout out to us….. TAKE ME, TAKE ME!!!!! lolol
Enjoy your weekend, everyone……
I look forward to your work….thanks for the gifts of your world!!!!
