I don't know what I was thinking when I showed up early one morning at Lido Key. By Florida standards it was freezing with a cold wind. I almost turned around to leave but forced myself out of the car to get a few images. I ended up liking this image enough to save it from the dust bin.
Normally this is a beautiful beach, a secret hideaway. Its close to an inter-coastal inlet and has trails and mangroves to explore either on foot or kayak. And being at the end of the key it's less crowded. All that aside there was not a single soul in sight on this morning.
I took this early in December, ever since then we've had warm weather, so I just picked a bad day. I'll come back and look again for a nice sunrise shot from here. Persistence is my co-conspirator.
Even though this somewhat remote, its just a few blocks away is the Ritz Carlton and St Armonds Circle. That's the nice thing about Sarasota, it has a mix of low key and upscale. You can pick and choose what you want.
In any case, I'm posting this image to remind myself to come back on a warmer morning and try again for that perfect sunrise shot.
