Peaceful Early Morning
4/23 Photograph Peaceful
Serene / Still / Flower

This is my peaceful spot, early mornings with the sunrise before the river becomes active. I am going to miss this view and will enjoy my last two days here before heading back to the hustle and bustle of home. At least with this view, I can turn my turn my back to the clutter while enjoying nature.  I did have to do some cropping to take out the window frame and the messy napkin holder. This is the second day in a row where I haven't checked out the entire frame before taking a photograph. I need to work on that. In this picture, I do like the lighting and did not make any lighting adjustments, all natural lighting in this photo.

Dolphin snorting!

The view is peaceful and beautiful for breakfast, but can become too distracting during the rest of the day when the dolphins are active or there are a lot of birds in the area. I keep a set of binoculars on the table to check out the different sights around the river. In this past week, I have seen the pink of a pink spoon bill heron and a couple of pods of mating manatees, along with pelicans, dolphins, diving sea birds, anhingas, herons, ducks and jelly fish all from my window. 

This afternoon as I was getting something down at the table, I saw my neighbor taking pictures of a dolphin that was just lying around in the water. Turns out it was one of the younger dolphins playing with a fish. Another circle of life event right before our eyes. It was having a great time until a larger dolphin came over. We decided that the larger dolphin was teaching the younger one not to play with it's food. It was very entertaining, another afternoon of free entertainment!
