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.

Mesmerized by Watercolors

I am mesmerized by the beauty of watercolors in nature and art.  How can we not be awestruck by the glorious shades of an evening sunset or morning sunrise?  They are the beauty in nature which encapsulates a feast of the eyes, a letter written on our hearts and the place we find beauty and respite from the cares of life. It is no wonder then that so much of our literature includes them.  As photographers, we MUST capture them at every opportunity in every place in our world.  For us, a return to the Marshes of Amelia Island, Florida and South Carolina give us photography enough art for a lifetime. They are in our estimation the joy in photography and art.

Sunset at Amelia

The incredible sunsets of Amelia Island … a revisit to island paradise…

Sunset at Amelia

Some of the most beautiful sunrise and sunsets are daily at Amelia Island…this image shot HDR from our balcony on West Side which faces the marshes…our East Side faces the beautiful sunrise of the Atlantic Ocean. There is really nothing more beautiful and HDR gobbles up the beautiful colors of both.
