Pelicans at the Sea

I do love those funny old birds, the pelicans, and I enjoyed photographing them at the Salton Sea.  I can't think of pelicans with out thinking of the poem by Dixon Lanier Merritt  "A wonderful bird is the pelican ... "   Although when I was growing up, my Dad always started it with "A funny old bird is the pelican, his beak can hold more than its belly can ... "   Does anyone else know this poem?

Return to the Salton Sea

Keith Skelton  held another Salton Sea workshop and I was excited to get back to do more photography.  Terry Myers came along, and we enjoyed hanging out with Keith and the other photographers for the weekend.

Sunday morning at the Sea was amazing, and my photos can't really share the total experience, the subtle color changes and sounds of the geese.  It was  worth getting up at 4:30 AM to get to our spot in order to experience this.  What a way to start the day!
