We went for a walk on the beach after a storm on Monday and found all sorts of creatures washed up on the shore. I don’t have any idea what kinds of seaweed these are, so chime in below in the comments if you can identify any of these seaweed species. Both of these are 5-image HDR shots taken with the lens resting on the beach sand (very carefully).
These massive dump trucks were working hard to offset the erosion that is taking place at Sea Island. They were running back and forth from Ocean Forest to Sea Island delivering sand. The kids loved watching them fly back and forth down the beach. It will be interesting to go back this summer and see how it turned out.
Last night I went for a bike ride to capture some night shots of Rosemary Beach. This is the Town Hall and US Post Office on the coastal side of 30A. The stars were amazing and show up well in this picture. The image was shot with a Nikon D800 and 14-24mm f/2.8, 100 ISO, 5 frames between 1.3 seconds and 20 seconds. It was processed using Photomatix and Lightroom.
Sunday night we went to the Lodge at Sea Island to listen to the bagpipe player, have dinner and roast smores. This amazing sunset over the St Simons Sound behind the Sidney Lanier Bridge was a bonus. This is a 5-image HDR photograph taken with a Nikon D800 and processed in Photomatix & Lightroom.
Each year at the beach we pick a night to get all dressed up in our whites for a family photo. This first picture is of our family minus my sister and her family who are in Germany. The second is of my parents walking away from the shoot…sweetest picture ever. The balance of the pictures are in the slide show below.
Each summer on our boys trip to St Simons, our first stop is to pick up mud minnows in this creek along the marsh. Even if we don’t get any mud minnows, it’s a beautiful place to stop for a minute and hang out.
