During an evening walk on the beach in Newport last winter, I came across a seagull standing alone under the clouds on a peaceful expanse of sand. Rain and the receding tide water had filled in the ridges in the sand, and reflected the dusky light. God’s restorative beauty. (Wish I’d brought along my bigger camera, but I think my little travel cam did okay.) Equipment used: Canon PowerShot A3400, exposure at 1/50, f 2.8, ISO 100.
