From Perdido Key Bridge travel west towards AL line and stop at any beach accessible parking lot.
I use the Nikon D300 as you encounter water and sand in shooting these, so the camera needs to be waterproof. Once shot a series in the rain with umbrella held over me. Flash is off camera at various positions.
Shot this at sunrise 6.19am in November, 2009. It was my first attempt at shooting shells of this theme with waves breaking over them. Many shots later I now have numerous shots with different shells, similar effects. I have now been back to this area 4 times.
