East Beach Gate


Took a trip down to Galveston today and shot this entry gate to East Beach. It was rainy, breezy, and cold [for Texas anyway] and I was hoping to find some fairly dramatic skies. This gate was recently sandblasted and battered by Hurricane Ike and looked to me more like something from Beirut than it did a ticket booth for Texas tourist.

Cool shot Larry! You got the dramatic sky you were looking for! I like the slant and post-processing!

Cheers!

I like the simplicity of this photo Larry. I think it conveys the mood you would feel if you were standing there.
