This is what sunset looked like from Port O'Connor today.
I was sort of headed for Corpus, but with no real schedule. Good thing, too, as I was having fun in Goliad for several hours. That's why Port O'Connor was all the far I got.
Here's the difference between myself and a real photographer: about five minutes after I got this shot, there was an even better one. I passed a flooded, furrowed field, and the sky was much more red. The reflection in the standing water in the furrows was absolutely spectacular, but I didn't stop.
You see, Dearly Beloved, I got eaten alive by some of the biggest mosquitoes I've ever seen while getting this shot, and I wasn't going to do that again!
I missed some other great shots...a buzzard standing on a fence post with its wings outspread, looking for all the world like a thunderbird on a totem pole, for one. I saw several hawks of different sorts, and a lot of egrets and herons.
There will be more pics later, and travel fun...
