St. Marks Morning

Sunday, September 25, 2011
It's been a wild few weeks here at Bill of the Birds international corporate headquarters. Apologies for the mostly unavoidable dead air here on the blog. So, as an attempt at making this up to my patient readers, here's a much-needed Moment of Bliss for you and me.

The image above was taken yesterday morning along the road to the St. Marks lighthouse. The air was cool and humid, with that whiff of brackish marsh. Birds dotted the sky as though the heavens spilled its pepper mill and I took a moment to feel my feet on the ground, to fill my lungs with sweet morning air, to count the glory rays striking skyward from the rising sun. It was so peaceful. Life at that moment, well, it was very good.

Then my camera battery ran out.

More soon.

Good grief, I just saw the heron posing at the apex of the sunrise triangle. Wow. Good eye, B. And welcome home.

I agree with Julie, great spot.
Camera batteries are like American Express - Don't leave home without it (them).

I love St. Marks, it's a couple hours from my house. I wish I'd known you were going. I might have temporarily gotten over my curmudgeonliness and come to say "hi" to one of my "Internet Pantheon" of famous people.
