Taken with my wide-angle lens. The birds were lined up on the beach in front of the Sunshine Skyway bridge.

Taken from in the water, the sky looks bluer here than the picture above.

This was a panorama taken with my phone. You can just barely see the bridge in the distance. This is the view from the East Beach turnaround.

I headed out to Fort Desoto in late September. It was a beautiful morning. Luckily I had my wide-angle lens in the car because there wasn’t a lot of birds around. The clouds were beautiful against the blue sky and the rain held out until much later in the afternoon. By then I was napping on the couch.
