South Padre Island before Sunrise 2

South Padre Island

As the sun begins its ascent into the sky, the colors of sunrise - orange and pink and blue - shine over the sandy dunes and beaches of South Padre Island. I waited (and hoped) these seagulls would float into the frame, and their timing was nearly perfect. It was a beautiful morning on the Texas coast.
