Gulf Shores Sea Oats

I found this picture as I was going through the many photos I made during my several trips to the Gulf last year. I really like sea oats. Because of the need to protect them from erosion, there aren't a lot of areas where there is access to large areas of them, so I don't get many chances to photograph them. I made this while at Gulf Shores State Park one day. I thought it was a good example of "Art in the Wind" because of the gentle rhythm of the sea oats as they swayed in the ocean breeze. I think I'd really like to be there now, since the weather forecast for the Huntsville area tonight and tomorrow is rain with some snow.


  1. That is such a lovely, calming photo of the Gulf coast. Really like it as described as "art in the wind." Yes, I would also like being there today, rather than up here in this winter blast again...still too cold for the South, so ready for spring here, aren't you?

  2. Yes, Gloria, I am certainly ready for spring. I just hope that we don't have lots of tornadoes and then miserably hot weather this summer.
