Some days you just need to unwind by the time the clock strikes five. This did the trick last night! Mother Nature put on quite a show for me at Turtle Beach on Siesta Key....the sky was filled with a dazzling array of hues backlighting a patchwork of wispy clouds. Right when I thought it couldn't get much better, a chunk of driftwood washed ashore. It was kind of like a dream....which is what I tried to capture in this image. (Enlarge it and you'll feel like the water is about to wash over those spidering cracks in the sand, right onto your toes.) The shooting was so good, I'll probably post a couple more from this series over the next week or so. In the meantime, I'm disappointed to report I hit a snafu with the SDP poll. 'Taking Photos Outside of Sarasota' was in the lead by two to one, when the poll inexplicably reset itself and indicated no one had voted. ((sigh)) Thanks to everyone who participated yesterday. For what it's worth, I'll keep the poll up for a few days if you're interested in voting again.
