“The Calm Before the Storm”
A respite from the snow and cold of winter, this image inspires us to “think” of warmer days and the delights of the ocean and the opportunties it brings to us to venture into wonderful places to photograph nature. This image along the waterways and salt marshes of Amelia Island was shot just as the clouds were rolling in for a major thunderstorm which created wonderful crisp-clear color and interesting cloud formations. As the threatening lighting and thunder were behind me, I was reminded that with beauty must also come danger and it is especially so in landscape, nature and wildlife photography.
After the Storm: We return to the beautiful and restful Amelia Island, a place of beauty, refuge and respite, peaceful sunrise and sunsets and blue hour glory.
