“Why do we love the sea?  It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.”  -Robert Henri

Hilton Head Island, SC was the destination of my first trip of the year…Hint if you desire less crowds Hilton Head is a great place to be in February amongst the friendly retirees and scarce beaches.  This shot was taken early morning after a sketchy bike ride at dawn with little available light…and yes, coffee in hand.  There is a spot left untouched by the large surrounding hotels and condos, home to many Osprey, Blue Herron, and Egrets.  Myself, my wife, and daughter Bella arrived at this spot called "the Kissing Rocks” just as they were turning blue.  The legend goes that if you kiss the rocks it brings one good luck.  However, I think if you kiss your loved one on the rocks you already have good luck… Most of my time this morning was spent watching my 9 year-old study the land scape, watching the birds and learning how to compose a photograph.  I took this photo in the meantime.
