Shorebirds in Ponte Vedra

This past week over New Years we spent a few days in Ponte Vedra Beach Florida.  The weather wasn’t great, but at least it wasn’t raining.  I found some pretty nice size sharks teeth and got some good shots of the shorebirds hanging around the beach.  Below was my favorite picture of what looks like a Sanderling or Dunlin.  I only say that after looking at this website http://jaxbirding.com/duval_lifelist.php that shows a lot of the common birds found around this area of northeast Florida.  This and other pictures of Ponte Vedra can be found at http://www.carsonmatthewsphotography.com/Travel/PonteVedra/

Water In and Around Atlanta

Over the past 6 weeks I have been taking a photography class at the Showcase School here in Atlanta.  We had to choose a project for the class and I decided to document some of the bodies of water in and around Atlanta.  A few examples that I photographed are the Chattahoochee River, Nancy Creek, Lake Clara Meer, the Pond in Atlantic Station, and the Chastain Park Pond.  Here are some of the photographs from my project:
