Neptune’s Reach – Dawn Seascape on Hutchinson Island

Neptune’s Reach, Hutchinson Island, Stuart, FL 2011

Neptune was the Roman god of the sea (Poseidon was that in Greek mythology). In this image, the early morning tide reaches out over scattered rocks on Florida’s Hutchinson Island. Hands down, my favorite place to shoot in Florida, this beach is one of several along the barrier island in Martin County. Found on a true beach road with water on both sides and a few beachfront homes along the way, the surf in this area is usually some of the strongest in South Florida. The fact that it is also one of the few areas with rocks makes it picture perfect, especially at dawn and dusk.

Here, just as the sun was rising through the clouds, I used a tripod assisted, slow shutter speed to show the movement of the tide over the limestone rocks. Of all the natural settings from which I love to shoot, clearly one of the most peaceful is just beyond…Neptune’s reach.
