One of the great joys of living on the West Coast of Florida (we live in Sarasota) has to do with the wonderful sunsets, some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen, that are common to this area. I took this photo recently as I was standing on the shore looking west over Sarasota Bay. As you can see by the exposed oyster bed in the foreground, the tide was out. But within just a few minutes the tide will reverse itself and, within a short time, the oyster bed will once again be covered with saltwater. It is said that the oysters feed on microscopic organisms that pass over the oysters as the tide comes in and then back out again, washing over the oyster bed. Couple the exposed oyster bed with the reflection of the sun-enhanced clouds on the water and you get a beauty beyond man’s ability to create. How grateful I am for the ability to see, and not just to see but to see in technicolor!! Think of how drab and different things would look if we saw only in black and white!
