    The light in that photo captures so realistically the atmosphere of a sunny late afternoon on Beach Drive. The water glows. The reflected sunlight is deep orange. The shadows give an impression of how deep in the day it is. And the heron is the ‘neighbor’ who always drops by.

    Stunning photo.

Sorry, comment time is over.
