Lost Dreams On The Gulf

The Sandy Marie, which was re-named to the “Tiger Shark” by it’s last owner, finally washed aground in Biloxi Sound. I shot this subject for three months in order to finally capture the image in this photo. I knew I wanted a cloudless night and smooth seas, in order to capture the shot I had in mind. However, the weather was stubborn and it took 3 months to get the conditions I was after.

A sad note, not very long after this shot was taken, this vessel was removed and dragged out to sea where it now sits today, at the bottom of the ocean as a man-made reef.
