I love the way the sky turns orange when the sun sinks into the Pacific. It almost looks like the pelican is going to fly into the last bit of the sun. It's a beautiful shot.

Hey Pat! Great picture! What kind of camera are you using?

Pat Tillett said...

Joe and Betty - thanks! I had to sit there for quite a while. Almost all the pelicans had gone back to where ever they go at night. I wonder, do pelicans roost? like chickens or crows? Time to google!

Alice - It's nice. Even if I don't see it every day, I love knowing it's there waiting. thanks!

ASBLACKASOBAMA - Thanks! I'm not sure if it was a Nikon D70 or a D100. This would have been a good shot with almost anything...
