Re: Beauty in the Marsh

the wind is roaring and the temperature is around 18. I had to lay down and rest the lens on a rock. The wind is blowing across the bay and I am assuming that fish are being forced into the shore - all I know is we went to see the spray and saw the gulls hovering over the shoreline. Those birds mus...
