Erica V. at WordPress writes about the photo challenge she created- elemental
“For this week’s challenge, explore the classical elements of earth, air, water, and fire. How do you capture something invisible like air, or the movement of water?”

Trying to capture the moving clouds, the changing water and rich colors. St. George Island, Florida.
When you stand alone on the beach, look out to the horizon and listen to the rhythmic waves lap and splash, lap and splash you are filled with awe snd reflection.
The iphone camera (or any camera for that matter) cannot truly capture what you see, hear and feel.
St.George Island, Florida.
The enormous sea turtles crawl out of the water at night and make their way over the sand to dig a hole and lay their eggs. Keep your porch lights off so the baby turtles aren’t attracted to the lights and travel in the wrong direction. If you see an actual sea turtle, you shouldn’t get closer than fifty feet. Their nests are called a clutch.
You can see the tracks- their shell making the flat middle and the side tracks from their flippers. Sea Turtles
“St. George Island is one of three barrier islands near the mouth of the Apalachicola River. It often hosts the largest nesting population of Loggerhead Turtles in the northern Gulf of Mexico.”
Dogs and humans walk along the water’s edge.

The weekly photo challenge is Early Bird The golden hour BEFORE sunrise. This is just at the moment of sunrise on St. George Island State Park, Florida where I was visiting dear friends last summer. The last morning we were there we drove and then walked to the end of the Island. It was a beautiful sunrise.
Another early bird- in a tidal pool, not at the State Park but by the house where we were staying.
