This is the first post of my new toy, A View from the Beach. I intend it as something of a journal, but I hope that others may find value in its content. I may discuss science, fishing, music or politics, or I may post a picture from a walk on the beach. You are welcome to join in on the comments. For today, a picture from the beach.
This bird watched us as we walked the beach this morning. On the way back it got resentful about photography and flew off. This was taken using my Kodak Z915 using the extreme zoom (optical and digital) which accounts for some of the graininess. I like the camera, but I wish for something with the speed and viewfinder of the digital SLR (I have a Nikon) and the convenience of the point and shoots. A bonus shot:
The Fata Morgana mirage. Here, the remains of James Island appears to hover over Chesapeake Bay.
