The lighting on Saturday morning was amazing!
“Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.” – Henry David Thoreau
Summer patterns have arrived and we are blessed in the mornings with clouds in the east. Due I believe to the proximity of the Gulf Stream. I kept this picture despite the artifact from the lens. Kind of looks like a camp fire.
As for the second picture there were spoonbills, glossy and white ibis, great egrets and more – all deciding on a fly around at the same time. wonder why?

“Nature is not easily discouraged, she recreates again and again that which has been destroyed” – Charles Torrey Simpson
Current read is a book about Florida called Out of Doors in Florida by Charles Torrey Simpson. Simpson was a naturalist who lived and studied Florida’s environment in the first part of the 20th century. While the above quote was specific to the roll fire plays in the Florida environment, it is true no matter what or who is the destroyer. And it applies to us as well.
Couple of pics from last Sunday.
As I walked around on Saturday morning I realized that indeed I am a dawn junkie. I need a “fix” on a periodic basis to keep my mind on an even keel. Despite having a camera and binoculars this is my walking meditation.
“It’s a fine line between Saturday night and Sunday morning” – Jimmy Buffett
Something light this AM. Have a great day.

I took my wide angle lens out for a walk last Saturday. All my other dawn pics have been with a telephoto – hopefully you can get some idea of the size with these. And I didn’t miss any good bird pics on the way.
However an important tip, if you bring a lens case with a belt attachment — wear a belt!
Water for me is best in the golden light of dawn. Or just about anytime – as long as it stays in its container.
Post for Photo 101.
“The best part of taking photos is getting to be there” – me
Feeling thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given. Walking among the oaks, or along the shore. Usually alone, the only sounds are the birds singing in the golden light of dawn.
