Dawn of Time – La Paz, MX
It always pays to get up early and this sunrise was literally the pot of gold waiting on this day. While staying on the Sea of Cortez I felt a bit like John Steinbeck writing his morning log. I woke up early as always and walked down to the beach with my camera setup and waited. This area is loaded with frigate birds, so I was waiting for one to fly by. No luck. When the sun did rise it was a bit lacking due to the lack of mountain or island topography. I still shot a couple of full on yellow images when directly through my viewfinder came these three brown pelicans and made the shot a heck of a lot more interesting. Whenever I see pelicans I think of the Cretaceous period when the world was extremely warm. The tropics dominated and there were strange beast everywhere. This was certainly the case in Baja.
