Glory Beach

Glory Beach is on the southern end of Jekyll Island. This is a great beach on which to walk as it was pretty deserted and I love the nice hard surface of the Atlantic compared to the Gulf. Other than the hundreds of birds and scores of sand dollars, my friend and I had the beach to ourselves. While I love the colors of the beach, sometimes it is nice to change it to black and white. This is also a good example of the rule of thirds with the shore line and horizon as well as the reflection on the water and the birds being in the intersections of the third lines.
The dunes and sea oats are just so graceful. There is a boardwalk that takes you out to the beach as the dunes are protected. In 2-3 months, there will be sea turtle nests along here for the summer. The sandy area above leaves a great place to add text for a card.
I love the reflection of the sun on the water and wet sand. While the surroundings are beautiful, I always think it is important to document the day with people photos such as the one below of my friend. Like I have shown you earlier, I sometimes even take photos of my own shadow! Wonder if that effects if we have six more weeks before spring....LOL! It has been a tough winter, so hope you are enjoying these beautiful southern Georgia coastal scenes!

First off, LOVE the new photos of you and Jackson! Thank you so much for taking me to the beach this afternoon. Old Man Winter is once again raging outside my window, so this was a wonderful "trip".

Glad you enjoyed your time at the beach!
