Gulf Islands National Seashore

What the Gulf Coast's shoreline may look like if man didn't disturb it.

The effect of Katrina on the trees at Gulf Islands NSS

On of the places we stopped on our trip along the ravaged Gulf Coast was Gulf Islands National Seashore. It was the girls favorite just because of the "little" critter (8ft) in the middle shot.

We stopped at the visitor's center which is in Mississippi. Unfortunately we could not make it to the actual islands but the lady manning the visitor's center said there was not one thing left on the islands after Katrina except the historical old stone fort.

It's interesting to see the effects Katrina had on Nature; usually we see only the floodage footage and aftermath photos of neighborhoods.

I really like the image of the gator. There is a lot of texture with the water and the gator's skin. I would like to see it as a b&w or maybe a duotone. Great image.

Love the photo of the gator. This place looks like my kind of place.
