Today’s Photo from Ted Grussing Photography:
Down the road

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

By Ted Grussing

… had hoped to send a photo from the top of the Pepperdine University campus tonight with a great view of the Pacific Ocean, but I got here too late and the sun was then providing a beautiful end of day in Hawaii. Instead here is my all time favorite of a Great Blue Heron, heading down the road at end of day. I have a 24 x 48 of this one in my home and never tire of it and the quiet message of life and hope that it engenders in me.
