Amazing Grace Trailing Her Nets

Amazing Grace Trailing Her Nets

Most of the shrimpers off Jekyll Island GA are nothing much to look at: working boats, well worked, and looking every bit of it. The Amazing Grace is amazingly well kept, and a bit more elegant in her lines. Quite a site here as she trails her nets off the beach at the center of Jekyll Island.

There were huge (well, at least very large) signs here saying “keep off the dunes” so I was limited to standing on the porch of the convention center (about 3 feet off the sand), flipping the LCD on the H50 over and down, and holding the camera at arms reach over my head to get enough height for this shot over the dunes.

Sony H50 at about 180mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/800th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

Cropped in Lightroom to place the horizon on the lower rule of thirds line. Blackpoint slightly to the right. Added Clarity and Vibrance, and Sharpen landscape preset.

From Colonial Coast 09.

    Nice shot of the Amazing Grace going after those Wild Georgia Shrimp. A good spot to get sunset shots of the shrimp boats returning is from the Wharf dock in the Historic District. It overlooks the Intra-coastal Waterway.
