The translucent and deep waters of the Gulf on the southern shore of the Bodrum Peninsula vary from the darkest blue to the palest turquoise, and the coastline is thickly wooded with every hue of green. In the evening, the sea reflects the mountains silhouetted against the setting sun, while at night it shimmers with phosphorescence. Its islands, bays and shores are treasured jewels.

The Story

 

"Move out" yelled the Captain. He was talking to his brother, George. Hearing this over the sound of a light southeast wind in his ears, George moved farther out on the pry bar. Just in time. A gust caught the cat-rigged sail, pushing the sloop's hull until it heeled to port and throwing the three men off balance. Just in front of them, the starting line was without obstruction. Only the clear blue shades of Bahamian waters were ahead across The Gulf Stream.

As we walked along the coastline on Caspersen Beach, the sun began to sink lower... causing the rocks cast long shadows across the sand. Over the Gulf of Mexico, the sun seemed to touch the water and give it a gentle kiss, as if to say "Good Night."

 

There are a lot of rock formations on this beautiful beach that set it apart from most other beaches along the Gulf Coast in Florida. Caspersen Beach is situated on the Gulf of Mexico in Venice, Florida. It is a secluded beach--away from crowds and the bustling residential areas. It is also a shark tooth hunter's paridise.

I have seen so many Flickr pics of Gulf Of Lune but I only made my first visit this weekend. Wow! Something to photograph in every direction. I wish I had visited before....

Another one from the archives. This butterfly is the most common one I see around here.

Long after sunset there was still a glow on the horizon. I captured this using a long 20 second exposure. I did not alter the colors in PS.

Gulf Islands National Seashore

Single Exposure

SS5/10", f16, ISO 50

They don't call it the Emerald Coast for nothing. Taken last Sunday evening. Thanks for your comments.

The Bay of Populonia is one of the most enchanting of Italy, the merger between the beauty of nature and the power of story.

The Gulf of Baratti and the promontory have always been places of attraction for humans: city life, the center of metal workers and merchants, strategic port for sailors of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The man of the Paleolithic age has never abandoned this territory.

Here today houses the Archaeological Park of Baratti and Populonia (near Piombino - Li) about the life of the Etruscans: a dynamic people who left a lasting mark of human presence on this territory.

We know their history by visiting the remains they left behind.

last night's photo sojourn on a back road here in town.

Early morning over the Gulf of Mexico as seen from Seabrook, Texas. Long exposure with ND filter.

Gulf Micro Storm - IMG_3591 - This is another view of the "micro storm" photo I shared a few months ago. I have never posted this view before, but I think it may show even better how unique this event really was. The Gulf of Mexico was like glass. Most of the sky was saturated blue. The dark clouds above us suddenly opened up releasing this waterfall rain shower from the sky. I am sure it was a once in a lifetime event.

Always cool when you can capture the full wing underside of one of these guys hanging vertically while nectaring on a small flower blossom.

The owner came out while I was taking pictures to see what I was doing. He said lots of people stop to take pictures of it but he does not have any pictures of the place. I plan to go out there this weekend with a couple of prints to give him so hopefully I will have more information to post next week.

 

Update:

I delivered the prints and talked to the current owner, a gentleman named Telford. He said the building has been in his family since 1975 but the building itself is about 100 years old. It was originally run by Rufus Baird. In 1975 Edward "Bo" Phillips was working for Rufus and took over the business. Bo was Telford's stepfather and Bo passed away in 1996. The store has been closed since then.

It's amazing how the colors change minute by minute!

Encountered some nice light on the drive over to Beaumont, Texas today.

 

Cheers everyone; have a great weekend.
