A misty morning on the bay

By ColleenA
Good evening....
Back from Namibia...lots of images to download and process....
This was the first morning on Pelican bay in Walvis Bay....a haven for sea birds.........this is the small wooden pier and a meeting place for seagulls.
The mornings start off with fog which rolls in from the cold sea onto the hot desert, by 11 am the skies are once more blue...

So the orchestra has gathered on top of the Pier, the conductor is on his perch looking down on them and
they are about to lead in with a thundering chorus of...Smoke on the water??

a nice shot well taken.

Colleen, I don't know how to put this, but you go to Namibia and you post an image like it's taken in the winter on the North Sea coast of the UK GrinGrinGrin
We need sunny images.

I jest Smile

Hope you had a good trip.
