Was the crew aboard this sailboat so distracted by the breathtaking beauty of Sarasota Bay at sunset that they ran ashore? Um…no. This boat apparently came loose from its mooring during the deadly storms that rolled through Sarasota in January. It looks like someone has cast some lines and tied it down, to prevent Mother Nature from pushing it elsewhere or sinking it and causing potential environmental issues and navigational problems for other boaters. I took this shot last night at the base of the Ringling Bridge heading toward St. Armands Circle -- beautiful evening with an unexpected (and pleasant) cold front. Believe it or not, I pretty much had the place to myself. Have I mentioned how much I love to shoot the winter sky in Sarasota? The steady diet of sunset pics shall continue!
