Beach Photos


They aren't great, but I had fun taking them. We were at Orange Beach, AL for a few days. No jellyfish, no seaweed, no algae. Just about right for playing in the water. I found it difficult to make good beach photos with the digital camera. The intense light made it hard to see what was in the viewing screen. The old SLR's have me spoiled. I should have taken my old Canon, but there are certainly advantages to the digital cameras. Click on the photos for larger views.

I kept trying to get photos of the gulls and terns diving for fish. This is about the best one. You can see a couple of them if you click to enlarge it.

Delay of Game

Well, no beach pictures yet. I've been dealing with a kidney stone intermittently for some time now. It's probably what was giving me problems before I went to the beach and has definitely given me plenty of problems since I got back. Life is not fun right now, so my blogging break is longer than anticipated.
