Driftwood Beach

Driftwood Beach is one of my all time favorite places to visit. 
It's more of a place of wonder, than anything, I think.
Perhaps that's why every time I visit I just want to photograph every detail of the beauty of nature.
Located on the remote northern end of Georgia's Jekyll Island, Driftwood Beach is a gem.
It's a reminder that our Creator was just that-creative.
In taking these photographs, my goal was to make every bend, every twist, and every curve of these trees come alive for the viewers.
To show you the textures: the softness in the sand and the wind worn patterns in the trees.
Salty air and wind creates unique shapes and landscapes over periods of time, and I am always awestruck by the willingness of a Live Oak to bend and grow in submissiveness to the ocean.

We did a little photoshoot while we were there :)






Spanish moss, how I love thee! 
I know you carry lots of chiggers, but I really don't care. 
Your beauty is unmatched and you are a quintessential Southern symbol.

Yet another post full of pictures reminding me that I could never live in any other place than in the South.
I'll endure the heat, humidity, gnats and mosquitoes for views like these any day.
"For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."
Romans 1:20
