Anna Maria Island, Florida

I live twenty minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida, and sadly I don’t get out there as much as I should. Oh, the excuses are there..”I don’t have time”, “I don’t want to fight traffic.” “People forget how to drive while on vacation.” These are pretty much the excuses I use when I contemplate driving out to Anna Maria Island. Once I do, I almost always feel like kicking myself because I have such a wonderful time when I’m out there. It refreshes me and sort of does a reset on me.  I went out last week for the morning because I knew that we had storms out in the Gulf and I wanted to try and photograph the clouds off the coast. By the time I got there, the thunderheads had pretty much dissipated, but the water was beautiful so I spent a couple of hours just photographing the beach and surrounding area. Hope you enjoy the photos and if you don’t live anywhere near the beach, maybe these will help give you a reset if you need one.

    These photos make me want to go out to the Island more often. I don’t get out there nearly enough.
