Florida Sunrise...


Hello again everyone, I missed the last few weeks of Sky Watch Friday, but I am back today. This sunrise was captured last week on Black Point Wildlife Drive at Merritt Island, Florida. It was a great day of watching and shooting birds from sunrise to sunset with one of the sky watch staff. Don't forget to click the sky watch link and enjoy the great photos from all over the world.

The color alone would be enough to recommend this shot, but the silhouette of the bird takes from really good to really great

Dewdrop said...

Were you chillin' with Klaus?! Great shot... love the interest that the sun creates obscured by the silhouette of the brush... love the bird, saying goodbye to the sun. Awesome!
