I arrived at Siesta Key beach before sunrise. With just a hint of light as I stood in the soft white sand, I was inspired. The beach had been beautifully groomed during the overnight hours. I reached down to grab a handful of sand. The grain of the sand inspired me to bring grain to the photography of the day. The slideshow is of Siesta Key and Sarasota. Enjoy!
Sarasota, Florida has many art and history treasures. Yesterday, I returned to The Ringling, one of my favorites. There are a few different admission options to this attraction. I chose the free one. You can walk the grounds for free and at your leisure. You'll see flower gardens, banyan tree and bamboo forests, and as was the case for me yesterday, an Osprey having lunch in a tree and dolphins feeding in Sarasota Bay. For a photographers, the rounds offer a variety of options from nature to architecture. Instead of rambling on, I have put together a little collection to give you a sneak peak.
