Ossabaw Island is a remote barrier island on the coast of Georgia. It is only accessible by boat. While it was owned privately for a good portion of it's recent history, it is now a nature preserve owned by Georgia and maintained by the Department of Natural Resources. In these remote natural areas, wildlife can flourish and nature can take it's course.
One of the first wild animals that you might notice when you visit are the Sicilian donkeys that still roam the north side of the island. They were brought to the island by Sandy West who was the last person to privately own the island. The herd flourished on the island living wild and grew to over 100 donkeys. They were eventually removed and the these remaining donkeys have been sterilized. They are mostly friendly but do live as wild animals and with little intervention from humans.

One of the best ways to visit Ossabaw Island, is to go on a Creativity Trip. These trips are scheduled throughout the year and usually last 3-4 days. For this journey, we were able to scheduled a private Photography Trip for about the same price and it included twelve photographers including myself.
Spending more than one day on the island allows you to visit, see, and photograph more of the island. It is a very large island of over 26,000 acres with very little transportation. We were lucky to be transported by truck around the island by our on-island expert guide. Also, spending the time away from civilization and closer to nature allowed me to get more in touch with my creative side. Here's a good sunrise photo I was able get from the northside dock:
Some of the wildlife that we were able to see and photograph included:
If you keep up with my journey behind my lens, you know one of my favorite types of photograph is night sky photography, particularly milky way photography. I would hate to miss the opportunity on this remote barrier island. As an undeveloped island it is naturally dark and away from city lights. So, it was by no mistake that we planned the weekend during a time when we would have a chance for it, if only the clouds cooperated and cleared for us. Here some I hope you'll enjoy:
