… from the curse of vandalism and graffiti.  Not far from the heron shots we came across this colorful “art” scrawled on a concrete retaining wall.  I guess it was easier to access at low tide, because it was right at the edge of the marshy water as we drifted by.

The heavy cloud cover from earlier in the day was starting to break, giving way to a magnificent sunset. 

I should have taken a second shot to show what a little selective in-camera cropping can do to improve the image – this shot was taken in a parking lot, catching the sun setting over a dune on the far side.  By zooming in to capture just the top edge of the dune in silhouette I managed to eliminate the cars parked just below the dune making it look as if I was in the middle of pristine countryside.

Yesterday I had the good fortune to get fairly close to some great white heron when we took the Discovery Wetlands Tour through some marshland on the north shore.  I took advantage of this opportunity to practice using shutter priority to capture the action.
