SPEECHLESS SUNDAY AT CORDOVA BAY BEACHA while ago I went to Mount Doug Park and down to the beach to see what photo opportunities I could find. With the Mountain throwing an early shadow from the west, most of the beach was already in the shawdow of Mount Douglas.I looked and saw two children play along the shore line with the tide out. They made a great silhouette shot with the Ocean in the background and the Sun still shinning on them.Have a great Sunday!SPEECHLESS SUNDAY AT CORDOVA BAY
