Clearwater Beach, Florida: Hurricane Inspired Reflecting Pool
Ya know, I think I do pretty well okay with my photography for the most part. Some pictures are definitely better than others. And some are crap, but I try to make sure none of those get posted! :) So when I snap a shot that seems to me to be really cool, I get excited.

This is one of those photographs. The recent storms had left a big tidal pool high up on the beach, near the very feet of these condominiums. And as the sun began to set, there appeared the most wonderfully lit reflection in the almost still pond. WOW. So this is my shot. I hope you like it. (comments either way are welcome)

  1. Hi Wayne,
    I saw the photo, before reading your comments. I thought the puddle was the Gulf!lol! Yikes! That's a little close.
    How has the Dunedin area been affected by this season's severe weather? Has there been much storm damage?
    What's the general attitude in the storm season; are people apprehensive or is it just business as usual?

  2. Thanks Bergson, A. Nony,
    The storm season attitude is one of cautious apprehension. People I know watch storm tracks very closely when there is a named storm. We try not to live 'in the shadow of the Valley of Death' but at the same time, must be prepared.

    You learn to be thankful that Ike missed us while being sorry it ever spawned, knowing that missing us means hitting someone else. Believe me, the hearts and prayers of the people of Dunedin and Clearwater go out to storm victims everywhere.
