Sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico, taken in Gulf Shores Alabama where my grandfathers beach house is, just a few miles down the beach past Orange Beach is Florida, 15 miles to Pensacola and an hour's drive to Panama City. This shot was taken about a week before Ivan hit the gulf cost of Alabama, leveling everything. My grandfather's beach house was in the direct path of the eye. The whole town of Gulf Shores was leveled.
