Amelia Island – Come Walk With Me

Amelia Island – Come Walk With Me 2:

I love to walk…beach, mountains, hills, woods and anywhere where I am surrounded by nature or beautiful architecture with my camera gear in tow ready to capture the beauty of it. I especially love to walk the beach at sunrise and sunset.  Amelia Island is the perfect place for nature walkers (and photographers, of course) for feasts of delights for the eyes and soul.  From the majestic ocean and Intracoastal Waterway views to the glorious sunrise-sunsets, boardwalk waterways and marshes, to the Sunken Forest, Aury Island, Drummond Point Park and Walker’s Landing and more — it’s a little heavenly bit of Eden on earth.


On this year’s Amelia Island photo tour, we spent days walking the trails throughout the island winding through Spanish moss-draped live oaks and palmettos which opened to gorgeous ocean and marsh views.  A gear-laden photog can exhaust themselves very quickly so with Canon5dMII and tripod in tow, I left our gear [that’s it right there sitting on the sand in the middle of the photo] to follow the walk to the open marshes to view its plethora of waterfowl, wildlife, flora and after shooting, we returned and I was glad to see the gators, crocks or a photog wannabe  had not absconded with our gear!

And finally, the anticipation of the “Sunken Forest” that trails down, then winding up to spectacular views of the ocean.  My new favorite private spot on the island. It doesn’t get better than this — sunrise in all its glory!

There’s more to come…watch for new postings. Until then, enjoy the views and if you want a truly enjoyable photography adventure, visit Amelia Island.

Come To The Pier With Me

Heading out to St. Augustine once again to capture the beauty of this area, its historical architecture and glorious waterfront, ocean, beaches and more. Go capture beauty!


It’s Spring and we are excited for our season of ocean, beach and waterfront adventures.  We are shooting as many ocean piers in the states as we can and then off to other places to capture them.  This image is the St. John’s County Fishing Pier in St. Augustine, Florida from our series on Florida piers and oceanfront vistas.

Sunrise is Magical

Our travels have brought us back to a favorite ocean place of rest and refuge. The sunrise and sunsets at the ocean are always magical and worth every moment of sleepy early rising to capture them.  Go capture them . . .

The sunrise wakes the lark to sing,
The moonrise wakes the nightingale.
Come darkness, moonrise, every thing
That is so silent, sweet, and pale:
Come, so ye wake the nightingale.

Make haste to mount, thou wistful moon,
Make haste to wake the nightingale:
Let silence set the world in tune
To hearken to that wordless tale
Which warbles from the nightingale

O herald skylark, stay thy flight
One moment, for a nightingale
Floods us with sorrow and delight.
To-morrow thou shalt hoist the sail;
Leave us to-night the nightingale.
_Christina G. Rossetti
