St. Helena Island, SC
Did you know?...
Pelicans incubate their eggs with the skin of their feet, essentially standing on the eggs to keep them warm. In the mid-twentieth century the pesticide DDT caused pelicans to lay thinner eggs that cracked under the weight of incubating parents. After nearly disappearing from North America in the 1960s and 1970s, Brown Pelicans made a full comeback thanks to pesticide regulations.

"Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly, into the mystic" ~ Van Morrison

From beautiful St. Helena Island, SC, wishing all my friends, near and far, a very Merry Christmas, whatever your faith or belief. May we all have fair winds and following seas for the 2015 year. Cheers!

While the sun was setting in the west, its colorful reflection in the eastern skies provided a wonderful backdrop for the moonrise. And suddenly my German Shepherd, Joshua, photobombed the image at just the right time making the pic complete.

As I was out photographing the first sunrise of the new year, my German Shepherd, Joshua, stepped into the frame. I liked the way he was silhouetted and his elongated shadow. Josh loves the ocean and staring out into its beauty so I took a couple of pics with him in it to remember the day.

“The winds, the sea, and the moving tides are what they are. If there is wonder and beauty and majesty in them, science will discover these qualities... If there is poetry in my book about the sea, it is not because I deliberately put it there, but because no one could write truthfully about the sea and leave out the poetry.” ~ Rachel Carson
