Beyond the BackyardFort De Soto

Orange and Black

Last Sunday at Fort De Soto, I walked onto North Beach and wondered what kinds of pictures I could take. The beach was crowded with people, the birds had all retreated into the bird sanctuary (smart birds!), and the sun was hiding behind the clouds. But as the sun got lower in the sky, it glowed a beautiful orange, and I found a lone Great Blue Heron who became my major subject of the evening.
