Since we moved to the Coast and I got semi-serious about photography, I’ve wanted to spend some time taking photos of the things that make the Mississippi Gulf Coast such a wonderful place.
One of the things that makes the Coast interesting is her lighthouses. There are five across the Coast, although one is decorative for the casino, and another is a replica of what used to be located on Ship Island. One of them is, of course, our beloved Biloxi lighthouse, and the remaining one has a murky history.
The lighthouse at the Broadwater is interesting. The marina is no longer there, and while this site says that the lighthouse was at one time operational, that is questionable. It certainly is not operational now, but it is fun to photograph. It’s also a part of the Coast history.
Because I don’t get home until around 6:30, we didn’t head out to get photos until the sun was beginning to set. Really, not a bad time to step out and take some photos or enjoy a drive along the beach.
The sunset has shifted north so it is no longer over the water.
Depending on where I stood or how far up or down the lighthouse I focused, it was either bathed in this lovely amber huge or was lit up by the bright blue skies and delicate white skies.
I’ve seen Sweet Husband much more this week than normal, but it was still nice to spend time with him this evening. He will often drive me to wherever it is that I want to take some shots and then he sits in the car and waits while I take yet another picture of the same thing, trying to get it right.
And when I was mostly satisfied, I decided that perhaps I needed to aim my camera at a different target. I can never resist a good stand of sea oats as the sun is setting.
I couldn’t help one last shot of the lighthouse, though.
This post is part of a 10 on 10 photo circle. Last fall I took the Clever Cookie blogging course, and one of the features of the course was a concentration on photography. After the course ended, to continue to practice our skills, some of us created a Photography Circle. In a circle, you move from one post to the next linked post until you wind up back where you began. For a 10 on 10 project, you are choose 10 photos documenting your life – perhaps a day, perhaps the favorite photos from the month.
Some of you may have made your way to me from my lovely friend Cathy from Peregrination Gourmande. All of you will leave me and make your way to Lauren at Life at Number Five. If you are starting with me, you will know that you have completed the circle when you make it back to me. Enjoy these images! And leave the other members of the circle some love when you visit. We all live for the comments!
