Last October I had the great pleasure of participating in a photographers and artists “Safari” to Cumberland Island on the Georgia Coast. A dozen photo and art enthusiasts, led by professional photographer and good friend of the Atlanta Photographic Society Gary Gruby, spent six days (and five nights) exploring Cumberland’s wilderness, barrier island and cultural features. Plus enjoying each other’s very pleasurable company. We had a blast!
I was also fortunate to come away with several ribbon winning images, including these three:
My favorite among 700+ images from the entire trip was this early morning view through the dunes:
Plus, I was fortunate to capture many additional photographs that I just plain like, whether any judges ever do or not. A few of these are shared here in my Facebook Cumberland Island Album.
Gary tells me that another Cumberland Safari is planned for later this year: Oct. 16-21. APS members who would like to learn more about this fantastic photographic opportunity please contact Gary Gruby by email or through his web site. And please feel free to ask me any questions you have about my experience. Hint: I liked it so much I’m going again this year!
