Thousand Words Thursday....I love Summer

I've decided to add two photos this week that really capture summer for me. The first is this shot of a sunset over the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. My wife and I live in New Jersey, but we love Florida and sights like this are the reason. Hopefully, our little girl will grow to love it as much as we do!


Nothing says summer like the beach, and on a trip last year just after a storm my wife and I found a bunch of starfish that were washing up on the sand. I had to grab this fun little shot before I helped them back into the water.

Beautiful photos! I have memories of collecting starfish on the beaches of Nova Scotia during a family vacation.

These are AMAZING captures, Doug. We just got back from the Gulf. (That's where "the boy and the shovel" were captured!)

We are just north of Atlanta, so it's only a 5-6 hour drive for us. I'm so glad that you guys love it, tho. Very cool!

We spent last week on the Gulf of Mexico, Texas side. I actually used on of my shots as my You Capture for the week!

The sunset is gorgeous and the starfish are wondreful! I'm so glad you helped them back to the water!

Those pics are amazing! The sunset one looks like it should be in a brochure, or a poster.

Those starfish are amazing! I've been to several beaches along the Gulf Coast of Florida and Texas and have never seen anything like that!

Jen said...

I agree about the starfish shot ... so cool (and equally cool that you found them in time to get them back into the water)!

Excellent shots!
