There is something so fantastical and so peaceful in the early morning hours. It's often hard to get out if bed before dawn, set up at a location and then wait patiently...hoping for the right light. There's always a reward though, even if there's no picture to be had...having that moment, the start of day, before the noise and craziness...when you feel at one with the world. This was one of those special moments where it all came together...the photo, the peace, the place. Taken in Apalachicola Bay a few years ago.
