Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

I reached back to one of my last beach visits and remembered some of the great views I was able to witness on Amelia Island in Florida.

I love the shape of clouds – the heavenly feeling they portray.  The sunrise this particular morning showcased the few clouds that happened to hover over the horizon.

I’m reminded of how magnificent nature’s creations are and how much I love to capture their raw beauty.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

My last visit to Amelia Island was a much-needed break from the chaos of my corporate and urban life in Atlanta.  I love a chance to enjoy nature and it’s even better when there’s water involved.

On my way to nearby historic American Beach, I was shocked to come across this creature in front of a house near the beach entrance.  Now, I’ve seen my share of turtles from visits to lakes and nature walks by brooks and streams – they are usually so small and cute.

However, this turtle was BIG.  I let him mosey on, of course – we both had a beautiful day at the beach to go and enjoy.
