Into the Sea by juddpatterson Into the Sea by juddpatterson
Her nest complete, the tracks of a female Loggerhead Sea Turtle fade back into the sea. In a couple months the young turtles will struggle to the sandy surface and make their own dash for the ocean.

This was taken nearly an hour before sunrise on a quiet east Florida beach. I used a flashlight to help light the track and balance the exposure. You'd never guess it, but the mosquitoes were insane right on the coast.

20s, f/6.7, ISO 1600
