An Hour at Huntington Beach State Park

Brookgreen Gardens closes at 5:00, an hour earlier than the state park across the road, so I drove to the park before dusk on Sunday for some marsh lingering.

  1. Hey! You REALLY got some nice shots that day, Steve! I think the last one is my favorite…quiet…beautiful light. Very nice.

  2. These are GORGEOUS! Love the golden orange ones and the birds in formation in the sky. It must have been magical in person.

  3. Thank you, Kimberlee and Peggy. HBSP is a special place, and “magical” is a good word for it sometimes. Standing alone on a boardwalk in the middle of a marsh with all that natural activity is a true blessing.

    Featured birds, in order of appearance: a female Belted Kingfisher… 3 Greater Yellowlegs and one Lesser Yellowlegs… 2 Double-crested Cormorants… a flock of White Ibis… a Tricolored Heron.

  4. Your skills continue to improve and impress, both behind the camera and behind the pen. Thank you again for sharing both! (Kimberlee “stole” my favorite, so I guess now I’ll have to go with the Kingfisher!) 🙂

    Response from Steve:
    I appreciate that, Bryan. I’m glad to have you as a regular reader. And your blog is really coming along nicely, too; fine postiings.

  5. Thanks for all the pictures! It’s a small tour of color that I can take from my chair in snowbound CO. There is such a rare quality to evening light, you’ve captured its stillness.

    Hi, Sarah. Thank you for reading and commenting. You’re right about evening light, and I’m glad you can see some of that in the photos.
