More from Hunting Island
Camera: K-5 
Posted By: slowpez, 11-18-2012, 09:58 AM

Here are a few more to give you a glimpse of this state park which is fast being reclaimed by the sea. All the cabins have been washed away and the erosion will soon destroy the campground. Loggerheads nest here and it is hoped that they will continue to have somewhere to lay their eggs. Lots of salt marsh filled with shrimp and other seafood.

I like them all. The first perfectly captures the colors of the salt marsh at this time of year -- as it happens I am looking out the window at almost the same scene so I can compare the colors directly!

Especially the third one is excellent. I enjoyed the whole set but I am a bit biased as someone who really likes coasts.

Thanks Fries, we seem to spend a lot of time at the beach considering we much prefer the mountains. The third shot didn't quite turn out the way I wanted, must have taken a dozen shots at different angles, etc. and this was the best of the lot. How I long for some sun.

Another evocative set... you really managed to capture a sense of place with these. They are all so good, the second is a very strong statement, while the others more subtle. Thank you for sharing Susan.

This looks like it will become a wonderful bird sanctuary.

I used to vacation here back in the day. I remember sitting on the porch of the old nature center watching the storms at sea. It was getting chewed up back then, and that was 20 years ago.

Thanks Tess. Glad you liked the second one. One of my favorites for some odd reason

Huntington Beach is still my favorite for birds Bob. For some reason they seem to have more species but it may be because of the time of the year.

Thanks Jim. I'll have a cold one for you if you ever make it this far.

You wouldn't recognize the place after 20 years. They are going to have to move the lighthouse I'm told; a lot of the campground is either gone or under water during high tide and some places on the beach you can't get to anymore even during low tide. Nature always wins.

You just have to take your canoe with you.

Thanks Norm. We did try a little salt marsh kayaking but somehow I managed to scrape all the skin off my right elbow. Don't think I'm cut out for life on the water.
