Sanibel Sunrise

Listening to: Tranquility by Chuck Jonkey.


This photo, with which I'd like to express my fondness and deep love for the embattled Gulf of Mexico, was taken from the Lighthouse Point at the edge of Tarpon Bay in Sanibel Island, Florida.


Sanibel is one of my most favorite destinations on earth. Along with its sibling, the Captiva Island, Sanibel sits like a crescent moon just west of Fort Myers, FL, at the eastern edge of the Gulf of Mexico.


Sanibel is home to the some of the most amazing beaches in the world, characterized by an incredibly large variety of marine fauna at the edge of the waters. The island itself is home to J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, a popular place for watching tall, wading birds.


Please don't miss the tree line, which is much clearer in the LARGE view.


Also, much better on black.
