Into the sun. It was going to be a beautiful morning.
You can usually see several photographers at Fort Desoto almost every day of the week. There’s usually a lot of them on the weekend. I met a group of friends this morning in early October. How I managed to get this shot at the end of north beach without a soul in sight is beyond me. I guess because there wasn’t many birds up at this end that morning. The tide was at it lowest point when we were there so you can walk pretty far out to the end.
