Last Look: A different perspective

ooks like the bird on the right is holding court on the beach. As I was walking along the gulf coast on Marco Island, Florida, a strong breeze kicked up and all but one bird turned into the wind.

Looks like the bird on the right is holding court on the beach. As I was walking along the gulf coast on Marco Island, Florida, a strong breeze kicked up and all but one bird turned into the wind. I often see people standing taking pictures of children and their sand castles on the beach. For a more interesting composition, try getting down to your subjects level. Looking eye to eye with the birds, I was able to show their feathers blowing back — and the surf in the backround adds to the beach feeling. Next time you hit the beach — however far away that might seem right now — kick back and enjoy a different view.
