From the city of Galveston take Fm 3005 South about 10 miles to the park entrance on the left.
I love the simplicity of shooting on a barrier island. Show up for sunrise on the beach and head over to the bay for sunset. A June morning provided me with a great sunrise and some reflections on the beach that helped complement the scene.
Galveston Island State Park is located near the city of Galveston and covers 1950 acres of Gulf beach, coastal prairie & marsh. Bird life is abundant at the park and there are hiking trails on the bay side of the property. The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department operates this park.
