To get this shot I had to ride my mountain bike to the end of a Robinson Preserve trail, take a few shots and quickly depart before the park closed just a few minutes later. This trail is about a mile of mangroves, roots and dense growth so I was a little winded as I jumped of my bike to capture the sinking sun on the horizon. I snapped away, maybe twenty shots as I only had about sixty seconds of sun left. When I got back home and looked at the shots it was a little amusing because the frames were going up and down due to my heavy breathing. So I settled on this one, perhaps in mid-breath. In any case, Perico Bay is a little bay that feeds into the Gulf of Mexico and is a favorite of kayakers and anglers, and sometimes winded photographers.
