Storm prep

Woke up Saturday morning to the news a tropical depression>storm>likely hurricane was developing in the Gulf… oh joy. If it is going to build into a full-fledged hurricane, forecasts say it should happen within the next 48 hours. Shit…

I’ve already started my to-do list for final house prep should that become necessary, but hoping it won’t. Once a storm enters the Gulf, it’s like a pinball game, there’s no telling where it goes until it gets there, and even then it can bounce around spreading the love.

With a lot of work ahead of me, I did the only thing I could do… I went on a photo hike.

Drove over to Camp Helen State Park just outside Panama City. I’ve been there many times before, and wanted to try again to photograph the abandoned pier on that beach. It was overcast and threatening rain, so I think it gave the scene a menacing look, which seemed appropriate considering what was happening out in the Gulf.

(Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, Nikon CoolPix S205 and/or iPhone4)
