Pink sand

With little to say tonight, I went in search of a picture from the past. Scrolling back through the years, I came across this beach picture I took in January 2013. 

It was an early morning picture taken on the hotel steps on the way to our morning walk. The sand at Gulf Shores, Alabama looks like sugar, but the early morning sun turned it cotton candy pink.

The only visible tracks were that of the beach litter buggy that empties trash cans and any other debris that's washed in overnight or tossed into the sand by a thoughtless tourist.

It's my favorite time to walk there.

  4. What a glorious sight. I suspect cotton candy is what we call fairy floss - and yes, the colour match is good.

  8. There is always beauty on the Gulf Coast. I always admire the fact that you know when to raise the camera to hold a moment.

  11. Such a beautiful photo! The sand looks like snow! (that's because it's snowing here today). My son and his girlfriend go to that spot every year and I can see why. Have a wonderful weekend!
