Tern on Buoy

A tern stands on a buoy in the Gulf of Mexico, off the shores of St. Teresa, Florida.

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.

Buoy in Sand

“Buoy in Sand”

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.
