Pensacola Beach during Happier times.... by 

I took this photo last December while visiting the Pensacola area. We stayed on Navarre Beach and drove across the 8 mile strech of the National Seashore…… the MOST beautiful white sand beaches anywhere!!! I am SO saddened by the images that I’ve seen today from this area….. I’ve been heartsick for the residents of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and NOW Florida…….I saw an ad last night where the CEO of BP promises to “make this right”……. I don’t believe THAT will EVER happen.

    What a beautifully lit shot! Obviously taken during the Golden Hour.
    Warm tones and reflections are super. I too am greatly saddened
    by what is happening there and all along the Gulf Coast.

  • Thank you Warren……yes, this is right at sunset…….indeed the most beautiful time of day :~)

    I agree with your narrative….BP is completely inept! This is a beautiful shot taken in the very best light.

    This is such a beautiful shot Maurie. There is a beautiful beach out in my backyard but nothing compares to Pensacola. They can’t make it right…ever.

  • Thank you Regenia….. you are right… that Pensacola/Destin area has THE most beautiful beaches….. I saw this morning that it should reach Destin this morning :~(
