The stillness calls to your spirit,
Cool, coarse sand shifts around your feet, while the night breeze fights to survive the dawn,
The sea oats dance slowly in its wake, the breeze wraps sensuously around your body,
caressing your skin, leaving a trail of cold goosebumps in its passing.
The horizon warms slowly, a magnificent golden blaze rises above the horizon, lifting your spirits as the glowing orb emerges.
Wondrous emotion wells, and inhaling it in deeply, you seek to hold onto it forever.

I took this image in August of 2013 in Boca Grande, Florida. I began walking the beach at 5:45 am waiting for the sunrise. It was an extremely magical sunrise and one of my favorite photo shoots. I hope that you enjoy it, and that I have conveyed at least some of that magical time to you.
Until next time,
