Washed up Seaweed on Sea Island Georgia

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).

Dump Trucks on Sea Island

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.

Main Street Rosemary Beach Florida

A look up Main Street in Rosemary Beach Florida.  The left side of the street is lined with restaurants, bars and shops including the Cowgirl Kitchen which has great Bloody Mary’s and Pina Colada’s.

Rosemary Beach Florida Town Hall

Rosemary Beach Town Hall

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.

Enjoy,

A Bridge Over Water

I love this walking bridge over the swimming pool in Sea Island.  In the summer this pool is stacked with kids and teenagers, but in February it’s cold as ice and empty.  This is a 5 image HDR shot on a gorgeous winter day.
