Morning over the Intracoastal Waterway

Watching the sun rise over the GTM Reserve and the intracoastal waterway.

Yesterday morning I went to the boardwalk over the Palencia salt marsh to get some sunrise photos. The water on the intracoastal waterway (ICW) was peaceful and calm. It was a lovely way to start the day. Across the ICW from the salt marsh is the Guana-Tolomato-Matanzas (GTM) National Estuarine Research Reserve. We get to watch the sun rise over the reserve in the morning. It is a little piece of heaven to have the reserve across the water and in a natural state.

Following is 1 minute and 20 seconds of staying in one spot and experiencing the morning. Watch it to experience the calmness of a peaceful sun rise at the salt marsh.
