The First Of February

Almost forgot that the month changed today, but I just remembered and here is your calendar picture. This was the sunrise one morning when I was working in Ohio a year or so ago. I remember that this was the only time I saw the sun all day. This is a shot that really benefits from a larger canvas, so be sure and click the picture to see a bigger version.

At The Beach

I went to the beach today, which you can do in Florida in the middle of January without too much difficulty. It was cold, and I had to wear a jacket, so it was a little odd, but not too bad. Not a whole lot of stuff to take pictures of, though, but I did get some nice shots of this shell. I found it on a stretch of beach along the southern edge of Ft. Desoto near St. Pete that was nearly deserted. That gave me time to get down on my hands and knees and line things up just so. The shot above is the position I found the shell in, but I moved it for the shot below. Not sure which pose I like more.

The Last Bit Of January

What is the calendar page this week? It's a cactus! Isn't that exciting? I'm not sure why I thought this was such a great picture. Maybe it's the composition. Maybe it looks cooler when it's printed out. It's not impressing me too much at the moment. I remember shooting this picture up in St. Pete in Pass-A-Grille Beach. I've always wondered how the little beach got that name, but I'm too lazy to look it up.
