"I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay until sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in." --John Muir
Well... I can't quite concur with Muir, but it was a fine sunset today at Sandy Hook. The bay was like a mirror all day and the light this morning when I arrived for my volunteering at the bird observatory would have been phenomenal for photography. By the time I was done and could scan the shoreline for ducks there was nothing but glare on the bay, but that glare led to this sunset with the distant calls of oldsquaw arriving with the gentle waves at my feet.
Anybody want to ID the bird standing on the rocks?
