Do you know someone who loves summer time pictures? I’m sure you do. I’d guess, since you’re reading this — It could be you who enjoys the summer and fine art photography as much as I! 🙂
And, as for me, I really feel at home doing fine art photography in pleasant summer time weather — creating photo wall art for you to enjoy!
So, I want to share 3 of my photographs I did during my summer journeys with Southeastern USA beach themes in mind.
As Jean & I traveled through the Southeastern United States, we spotted several photo ops meeting the requirements mentioned.
Thus, I grabbed my trusty Nikon & tripod, and captured these moments to add to my photo gallery.
I thought these would make a great addition for beach & sea lovers looking for alternative wall decor ideas.
Please let me know how you feel about these images.

All About Beaufort South Carolina
I researched and found some interesting information to go with this Port Royal fine art summer picture. Wiki says:
“Beaufort, SC is located on Port Royal Island, in the heart of the Sea Islands and South Carolina Low Country.
The city is renowned for its scenic location and for maintaining a historic character by preservation of its antebellum architecture.
Also, Beaufort’s prominent role during the Reconstruction era after the United States Civil War is memorialized by the Reconstruction Era National Monument, established in 2017.
And, the historic low country city is known for its military establishments, being located in close proximity to Parris Island and a naval hospital. In addition, the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort calls the city home.
Newsworthy: Beaufort, SC has been featured in national newspapers and magazines such as the New York Times.
And, it was named:
“Best Small Southern Town” by Southern Living,
a “Top 25 Small City Arts Destination” by American Style,
and a “Top 50 Adventure Town” by National Geographic Adventure.” ~ Wikipedia.org
More From Tybee Island Georgia
“Tybee Island is a city and a barrier island located in Chatham County, Georgia, about 18 miles east of Savannah, Georgia.
Though the name “Tybee Island” is used for both the island and the city, geographically they are not identical. In fact, only part of the island’s territory lies within the city.
Tybee resides at the easternmost point in Georgia. The famous phrase “From Rabun Gap to Tybee Light,” intended to illustrate the geographic diversity of Georgia, contrasts a mountain pass near the state’s northernmost point with the coastal island’s famous lighthouse.
As of the 2010 census, the city’s population was 2,990. The entire island is a part of the Savannah Metropolitan Statistical Area.
FYI, Tybee Island was officially renamed “Savannah Beach” in a publicity move at the end of the 1950s. But, the city of Tybee Island reverted back to its original name. (The name “Savannah Beach” nevertheless appears on official state maps as far back as 1952 — and as recently as the mid-1970s.)
The small island, which has long been a quiet getaway for the residents of Savannah, has become a popular vacation spot with tourists from outside the Savannah metropolitan area.
The Hotel chain..
Tybee Island is home to the first of what would eventually become the Days Inn chain of hotels.
But, the area is best known for the frequently photographed Tybee Island Light Station — and the Fort Screven Historic District.
Tybee is one of the few locations where the United States Air Force dropped an atomic bomb—by accident (during a botched 1958 military training exercise).
Though the “Tybee Bomb” did not detonate (and, according to some reports, was not armed with a fuse), there has been ongoing concern.
Dreadfully, the Mark 15 nuclear bomb lost during the mishap was never found.” ~ Wiki
How’s that for a story?
Saga of Little Duck Key Florida
When looking up information about Little Duck Key, I discovered that the island went through some “name game” dilemmas. I thought you might find this story from wiki helpful when mapping out your Florida Keys trip. Read what I found…
“Little Duck Key is a small island in the lower Florida Keys.
Driving down Hwy US 1 (or the Overseas Highway), the road crosses Little Duck Key at approximately mile marker 40, just west of the Seven Mile Bridge.
The west end of the bridge ends on this little Florida island.
The island itself, which is marked on current navigation charts as Little Duck Key is part of a very confusing name history of all the islands.
It’s located on and near the highway between Pigeon Key and Bahia Honda Key.
Locals called Little Duck Pacet Key. Then, it was given the name Little Duck Key during the construction of the Overseas Railroad.
Incidentally, the small island was also called Big Money Key.
And, other names included the fact that Ohio Key was called Little Duck Key.
More of a stopover or drive through, the island offers a small beach picnic area and boat ramps.”
Serenity Now — Bluffton South Carolina
I know I included two fine art photos from SC but, I love traveling around my home state on photo trips. What can I say except to invite you to do the same! 🙂
Now, here’s the juicy parts about Bluffton, SC you should know, according to wiki:
“Bluffton resides in Beaufort County, South Carolina, United States.
It is primarily located around US Route 278, between Hilton Head Island and Interstate 95.
The Old Town
The Lowcountry town’s original one square mile area, now known as Old Town, is situated on a bluff along the May River.
The population as of the 2020 census was 27,716, an increase of over 120% since 2010, making it one of the fastest growing municipalities in South Carolina with a population over 2,500.
Bluffton is the fifth largest municipality in South Carolina by land area.
A Piece of Hilton Head
The town is a primary city within the Hilton Head Island / Bluffton / Beaufort, SC Metropolitan Area.
The Big Tax Revolt
After the Tariff of 1842, Bluffton became a hotbed of separatist sentiment, which in turn led to a protest against federal taxes called the Bluffton Movement in 1844.
Even though the movement quickly died out, it somewhat contributed to the secession movement that led to South Carolina being the first state to leave the Union.
In the Antebellum Period, Bluffton became a popular location for wealthy merchants and plantation owners.
Then, during the American Civil War, two thirds of the town was destroyed by fire by the Union’s Bluffton Expedition on June 4, 1863.”
The Ever-Popular Myrtle Beach South Carolina
“Myrtle Beach is a coastal city located on the East Coast of the United States in Horry County, South Carolina.
It is located in the center of a long and continuous 60-mile stretch of beach known as “The Grand Strand” in northeastern South Carolina.
Myrtle Beach — Tourists’ Paradise
Myrtle Beach is one of the major centers of tourism in South Carolina and the United States.
The city’s warm subtropical summer time climate, miles of beaches, 86 golf courses, and 1,800 restaurants attract over 20 million visitors each year, making Myrtle Beach one of the most visited destinations in the country.
Also, the Myrtle Beach metropolitan area is the second-fastest-growing metropolitan area in the country, and more than 104,000 people moved to the Myrtle Beach – Conway- North Myrtle Beach area over eight years.” ~ Wiki
My Love for Myrtle Beach..
Jean & I visit the Myrtle Beach area often. I love to golf or relax at one of the numerous hotels. And, of course I enjoy capturing winter and summer time pictures to add to my fine art photo gallery.
