Beach-DanMiles Beach Entry #21
My fiance and I relocated to the Destin area from Ohio. We had visited several times over the past few years and always talked about how it would be amazing to live here. We were driving around the Sandestin resort and pulled over to enjoy the view, a beautiful sunset over the bay.

Beach-DianeMcAndrew Beach Entry #17
This particular photo was taken this in November on a spur of the moment trip to Destin. On this particular morning, I was enjoying a leisurely jog down the beach when I came upon this lone sea shell sitting at the water's edge. The sunlight glinted off the shell in just the right way so I could capture all of its warm colors.

Beach-DianeGaynor Beach Entry #16
Though it's been a rainy summer, the cloud Formations and Sunsets here on the Destin Gulf Beaches are the most Beautiful, Amazing and Relaxing! Dusk at Destin, gives you a feeling; the night is still young (to go out to all that Destin has to offer: great resturants, clubs, family venues or to the habor) And you get Anticipation for the next Destin Day.....Destin Does it Right!
Diane Gaynor, Destin, FL

Beach-EmilyDoughty Beach Entry #15
This picture was taken early in the morning. Mornings are magical on the beautiful Emerald Coast.
Emily Doughty, Hernando, MS

Beach-DavidCakalic Beach Entry #14
This was taken last on an October morning in 2012 from the balcony of the resort we were staying at. The Gulf was rather calm, almost a glassy green this morning; and the sun broke through the clouds off shore, streaming a ring of light onto the water.
David Cakalic, Saint Peters, MO

Beach-KristenCook Beach Entry #13
I took this photo at Henderson Beach in Destin, as I drove away after a day at the beach. It was just too beautiful not to capture.

Beach-MelanieHobbs Beach Entry #11
After my last radiation treatment in May, I went to the beach waiting for the sunset. It was so beautiful and I got an added bonus as this bird slowly walked into frame. Perfect end to the day!!
Melanie Hobbs, Sneads, FL

Beach-JimLaird Beach Entry #10
I really wish we lived closer so we could see this more often. I love this photo because you can truly see the emerald color of the Gulf matches the green in the chairs. Its beautiful.
Jim Laird, Wright City, MO

Beach-ScottyLisenbe Beach Entry #9
I really enjoy our white sand and sea oats… I like to watch the sea oats change colors during the change of seasons. Toss in the beautiful water, and it is a joy to live in Destin.

Scotty Lisenbe, Destin, FL

Beach-JesseFoy Beach Entry #8
While out walking the beaches of Destin, Florida, I take my DSLR camera everywhere with me, always prepared to capture just the right moment. This moment happened to take place on the beach in front of the Crab Trap restaurant in Destin during February. To me, nothing beats a photo of a sunset, unless you have frisky little birds in it, and in this photo, I have both.
Jesse Foy, Destin, FL

This photo was taken on our vacation to Destin last October. The sunsets were fantastic, and we cannot wait to come back.
Tina Cakalic, Saint Peters, MO

Krista Martin, Destin, FL

Beach-MarcLemay Beach Entry #3
Nice sunset on the beach. I like this moment of the day when everyone on the beach waits for the same thing, this wonderful show of the nature. It's for me my favorite part of the day on the beach. It's so peaceful. This photo was taken during Spring Break 2013.
Marc Lemay, Fort Worth, TX

While walking on the beach collecting shells with my two little ones, I saw these tiny shells and couldn't resist snapping a shot of them. Love how tiny and fragile they were.
