Lensball Sunrise

There was a high bank of clouds on the horizon when I arrived at the beach, blocking out the sun for some time after sunrise. But I stuck around and got photos anyway. The first two, below, is of a structure on the beach made of driftwood. It reminded me of a Native American Teepee. The other is a Black Skimmer feeding along the shore [just above my Hootin' Anni watermark]
 



...the rest are all the Gulf, the sun, and the lensball. The 5th one down from this series has a flock of brown pelicans in view:



...dunno why this turned as dark as it did, but I liked it, so added it to the series.

  1. I love all of them! Even the black one, that is so original and unexpected. I like the teepee, too. Wonder if kids made it. What a surprise to see your beautiful new owl header!!

  3. I agree with Ginny and Ann: I love them all, and it's fun to see an inverted sunrise like that. I keep trying to look at them right side up, tipping my head as far as it will go! :-)

  5. Love those lens ball pictures and the black one was almost an ominous warning. If we aren't better stewards of this earth, we may face that.

  6. I love 'em all but the last one is FANTASTIC! It's funny because it looks like it has a dent! It could be a black rubber ball losing its air...

  7. I love the owl! The last ball has the look of a floating bowling ball. Now that brings up a question...Do bowling balls float? Love the style of your blog too. :)
