JAN112009, originally uploaded by colemama.

Dawn, the beach, soaring gulls, and the full moon setting - a glorious beginning for a new day! Hundreds of shots were taken and edited, but this was one of the last ones. The moon is nearing the horizon and beginning to fade - but what a wonderful showing the previous night! Once again, though, a new cycle begins - and life's creations explore refreshed. North Lake Dr & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL


  1. This is beautiful! It is so peaceful and I can almost hear the cry of the seagull. I was disappointed that it was cloudy/snowy here so we missed seeing the moon.

  2. Wow - what a photo - I love the subtlety of the blues as the change from the water to the sky. And yes 100s of shots. I don't take that many - but it's always a question of choosing. Your photos are inspiring.

  3. Thanks for your kind comments - There's no doubt that I have colorful 'subjects' for my photography - an advantage of living in Southwest Florida! :)
