I set up my tripod just as the Sun rose above the horizon. The water you see in the picture started rising quickly, and almost covered the green moss covered heart shaped rock. As it started rising higher up, I decided against getting wet, and ran back onto the shore. I was disappointed not to have been able to take the picture of the Sunrise, having driven an hour to reach this place before Sunrise.
"Great morning. Isn't it?" a middle aged, very fit, very rich woman in white Nikes from head to shoes said politely, as she brisk walked away. The Todville road in Seabrook, TX has some lovely expensive homes of rich people, with back yards facing the Galveston bay
It was a lovely morning, and there was no point in wasting it thinking about pictures when the nature was painting the skies with beautiful colors. I stood there for sometime admiring the light, when the water receded, and the Sun was in the right position just beneath the clouds.
