beach walk


Yesterday, I got up pretty early in the morning and made the hour-or-so drive to Daytona Beach to see and photograph the sunrise. It turned out to be a pretty overcast morning once I got there. Because I had stopped to take a few photos of a building glowing in the darkness that caught my eye, I was late. I ended up getting there about 10 minutes after the initial peek of the sun over the crest of the ocean horizon. (I’ll share the photo of the building in a future post.)

Over the course of my beach walk, I came upon Nancy. Nancy is a local to the area. She has a smile that was as warm as the rising sun embracing the earth with the light of a new day. She was great fun to speak with and finally I asked if I could take a candid beach portrait. She was happy to oblige me.

Here’s your photo, Nancy. I hope you like it.
