Here’s another buoy, this time floating in the water with a tern sitting on top of it. It appears to be a Least tern, which is a common shore bird along much of the U.S. and Mexican coastline in the warmer months. The view looks out on the Gulf of Mexico from St. Teresa beach. I had some fun with Snapseed on this one, and I think the watercolor effect really kicks the beachy feel up a notch.
Here in Florida it’s perfect beach weather, and I’m excited about my upcoming long weekend at the beach with friends. So it seemed fitting to share a few photos I took on a previous trip. I took all of this week’s photos on my iPhone, which usually yields less-than-stellar results for me. Sometimes I get a good shot with it, though, like this buoy I found in the sand along the path from our house to the beach.
