"The Grand View"

The Grand View

August 29th, 2019

"The Grand View" was photographed on Tybee Island, Ga in August of 2019. 

"The Grand View" is an awesome view of the Milky Way. Who says  you can't photograph the Milky Way in Coastal Georgia? Not Me! 

There is a wooden life guard stand in the foreground on the left. These life guard stands were built for the set of The Baywatch movie, starring The Rock, Dwayne Johnson. They were donated to Tybee Island after the movie was completed and replaced the older, smaller life guard stands that were painted white with the red cross.

There is also a wooden swing in the foreground center. I believe they were donated to Tybee also. You can see some sea oats also blowing in the wind in the foreground. In the background you can see the Atlantic ocean and some of Little Tybee Island. 

Of course, the centerpiece of the photograph is the Milky Way in the background. A small plane can be seen flying over the swing that looks similar to a shooting star. Jupiter, the brightest looking 'star', can be seen just above the sea oats. 

I think "The Grand View" will make a great fine art piece for anyone who has started or wants to start a collection of my night sky prints or anyone who loves Tybee Island and Coastal Georgia. It's for Coastal Georgia Lovers, like you, Everywhere!
