This is the early morning view across the Intracoastal Waterway on the last day of February. It is warm and bright with the spring winds carrying the clouds and ruffling the water. The marsh is just starting to show green among the golds and bronze of winter.
In the early morning, as the tide starts to move in, the sea gulls gather expecting the waves to bring them breakfast. I selected this one gull from among many because of his frozen, unmoving gaze, expecting good things for the day.
