Steps to Greater Heights.
Photo for January 2012: Steps to Greater Heights.
The morning sun had gone through the thick patch of cloud above the horizon and was getting a little harsh. Moving down the beach where the tide was still a distance away, I followed the narrow but fast waterflow from inland. The curves made me pause in my path as the waters continue to rush past my feet.
Getting low down to the ground, I found the "steps" and fired off. Reviewing the image on the LCD, I noticed something bluish in the background behind one of the rocks. I looked up and saw a huge 5 gallon plastic jerry can bobbing in and out. Huffing and puffing, I lugged the jerry can up the beach. One was to get it out of the frame and secondly, I do that to clear the beach of any man-made objects that can cause harm to the inhabitants of the ocean.
