Late yesterday afternoon, I walked along Bottoms Road toward Fiddlers Point. I intended the outing to be more exercise than photography, but that changed when I encountered the glorious spectacle of the golden salt marsh and intense blue water and sky.

These images were taken with a Canon G9 hand held.
At the seine yard, I turned to the left and walked northward along the shoreline of a narrow peninsula.
The wind and tidal currents create fantastic shapes and textures of the grass ...
Looking into the sun, the cordgrass stems are pointy lines of silver and golden light.
Ahhh ... animated forms and textures and colors
This last image is a self-portrait taken of my shadow walking back to the car. So I did get some excercise after all.

The cypress trees hold tight to the bank and river bottom. Their long gracefully curved roots grow horizontally, then turn up and into cypress knees of fantastic shapes. Mostly the knees populate the steep bank of the river. But in one instance, the knees appear to have marched in a line across the river from shore to shore. I discover this was my destination where the river has captured my imagination.
From a canoe drifting in a fast moving river, I try to compose several spontaneous still photos. Then turn to begin an exhilarating glide downriver with the setting sun.

I am on a Mini Vacation and am having fun exploring hiking through forests, walks to springs, and if the temperature warms up this afternoon maybe I will paddle the Sopchoppy River.
