I hope you enjoy!

There is something very primitive about the beach in winter. On this late November afternoon, the beach at Lighthouse Point onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola was chilly, lonely, and spectacular.

It is simply incredible what dust and a star can do, isn't it? Friday morning's sunrise was a heavenly gift to those of us awake early enough to witness it. Thank you Margaret for a wonderful Skywatch Friday photo!

Two fishermen sit on the shore of Pensacola Bay in Gulf Breeze, watching the fading light, sharing a moment in time. The contrast between the silhouetted fishermen and the blue bay fits in with October's City Daily Photo Theme: Contrast. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

One of the many fishing boats here in Gulf Breeze this weekend for the Pensacola Seafood Festival and the 2009 Redfish Cup Championship which has 20 two-man teams competing. These guys were loading up their ride at Publix Thursday evening. Happy fishing to all!

Not too long ago, on a visit to downtown Mobile, Alabama, Margaret decided she had to have a picture of this window display at Downtowner's on Dauphin St. She took this photo with her grandmother in mind, who is a member of the Red Hat Society.
Happy Grandparents Day to all of our grandparents!

This shot was taken on another recent Sunday morning from the pier at Shoreline Park South in Gulf Breeze, and looks east across Santa Rosa Sound towards the Bob Sykes bridge which connects Gulf Breeze to Pensacola Beach and Santa Rosa Island. Many, many fish are caught from this pier.

Since 13-year-old Margaret is the most frequent contributor to this blog, I thought a photo of her would be appropriate today. This was taken this morning as the sun was rising in the Ft. Pickens Area of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Margaret and I have made sunrise on the beach a tradition for the two of us, enjoying the peaceful beauty of the coastline when no one else is around except the shore birds (below) and sand crabs.
At sunrise and sunset, the waters of the Gulf of Mexico change hues every few seconds. It is impossible to convey in photographs the hundreds of shades of blues and greens and grays... but we try.

This great blue heron was fishing for breakfast Sunday morning at Shoreline Park South, and didn't seem to mind the two young girls 5-10 feet away snapping pictures. These serene creatures, some of whom nest and hunt in our neighborhood, are quite accepting of people... as long as we don't get TOO close.

This is one of Margaret's favorite live oaks in town, so she photographs it often. It stands watch over Santa Rosa Sound, just a few feet from the water, at Shoreline Park South on this fall-like Sunday morning in August.

Margaret took these shots of a log washed up on the beach at the Ft. Pickens area of Santa Rosa Island. The huge surf was bringing up many unusual things from the ocean floor, thanks to the 35-40 mph sustained winds from the remnants of Claudette as she came ashore Monday morning.
