Perdido Key at Night

I took this shot of the water tower from the condo (in-laws, not mine) we are staying at this week. It was at night but the 1/1.3 shutter speed brought out a lot of the available light.The Perdido Sun, where we are staying. Hurricane Bait. This area took a direct hit by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, causing substantial damage to Perdido Key, Orange Beach, and Gulf Shores. They rebuilt it. It will come again.


  1. Unfortunately positioned for hurricanes, but lovely when none are in evidence.

    The salad I made from your food blog was hit. Thanks.~Mary

  2. I wish you could tell me how to use the 'too much sun' and 'not enough light' on my camera...I have had the chance to take several moon pics and they just look like the sixties 'Aliens are landing' photos...I did read manual, but that stumps me!

    Nice shots, and shows colors so well...

  3. i really liked the last photo. beautiful contrasts! enjoy your vacation :)
