Matagorda Beach at Sunrise
As I walked in the dark along the lonely beach at Matagorda to set up for a winter sunrise, only the sound of the waves and the cold, north wind biting into your face broke the eerie kind of silence! I had the place all to myself! Not a soul in sight! After all, it was a smooth 37 degrees and the wind blowing at 15 mph out of the north! It was cold! However, when one discovers footprints along the shoreline fading into the distance, you realize you are not the only one enjoying the beginning of a new day!
