At Mashes Island late on Friday, I packed light with a Canon 7d body, telephoto zoom, tripod and boots. My reward was a flock of gulls resting/sleeping in fabulous light. So ... I took my time approaching the birds, while trying various approaches for depth of field, shutter speeds and compositions. Fun!

This pair is my favorite.

Here is a shot out of the window of my car along the road to the county park of a great egret.

The sunset under the sea oats during a short walk toward the mouth of Ochlockonee Bay.

Have a great new year!

Walking the Sopchoppy River

These photos were taken last Monday morning walking up the Sopchoppy River from the Oak Park bridge. The water is so low that there is not enough water to float a kayak along long portions of the river.
