Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast in 2005 but like every dark cloud it too had its silver lining. Beginning in 2007 “chainsaw artist” Dayton Scoggins and sculptor Marlin Miller converted trees killed along the beach just west of the Biloxi Lighthouse by Hurricane Katrina’s tidal surge into beautiful works of art.
There are probably 20 – 30 of these amazing sculptures stretched out along a couple miles of the median of US 90 which parallels the beach from Biloxi to Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi. I was driving home one evening and stopped a couple times to take pictures of the ones that were still lit up well enough by the setting sun to show off the beauty of the workmanship.
All of these shots were taken on Kodak Ektar 100 with the Vivitar V3800N body using the 135mm f2.8 Pentax lens set at f4 for the first photo, f5.6 for the second, and f8 for the third one; with a shutter speed of 1/125.
I have a few more shots I will post later and I would really like to go back again but earlier in the day when the sun is higher so I can shoot the ones that are in the more heavily shaded areas.
