This is one of your more spectacular shots (which is saying a LOT) Randall. You can even find a way to make tire tracks look golden and gorgeous. #1490397

The elbow in the little stream caught my attention, as Oshie and I were walking. Oshie is farther down the beach, but she is heading back toward me. There is also a two-masted sailing vessel that is hardly visible, between the two sea stacks on the right… and a line of pelicans flying low over the surf. Yet it was the light play on the breaking waves and mist that brought my camera to my eye.
