Florida Christmas Color.---Dawn at St. Augustine Beach.


I took this photograph at dawn one morning in early December a few years ago.   I was at the beach with my husband and his children;  he and they were still asleep, so I grabbed the camera and went out before the sun had even started to come up.   Something prompted me to get out of bed early one morning.  These photographs ended up being a gift I made to myself, completely inadvertently.  It was one of two photographs; here is the other.

I didn't have much hope when I took them they'd come out.  The water---it was high tide---looked much darker, roiling under the rising sun;  I didn't notice that the dark gray surface was glazed with reflected sunlight or that the foam on the waves was pale blue.  It was a gorgeous moment I'll always remember.
