South Padre Island before Sunrise 5

South Padre Island

On a beautiful morning from South Padre Island, seagulls drifted overhead in the morning breeze. This image is a composite, as the longer exposure of the first image made the seagull appear blurry. I took a second image with a much faster exposure to have the seagull appear sharper, and thus - the final image… just like eye sees.

I love shooting barefoot as the surf laps around my toes!
