Hurricane Dorian - Jacksonville Beach Pier Waves

When Life Gives You Lemons, Take Pictures of Downtown Jacksonville

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

Last night’s sunset over Downtown Jacksonville was a providential surprise that made for an awesome photography opportunity – one I could not pass up!  Yesterday evening, we were scheduled to photograph a building in downtown Jacksonville, but due to an administrative issue at the facility, I found myself in Downtown Jacksonville with nothing to shoot.  But after looking to the sky, I knew what I had to do!  Paper-thin cirrus clouds were sweeping through the area as the sun began to set, and that almost always means a stunning sunset.  So, I headed down to the Southbank and we setup shop for a few hours as afternoon gave way to sunset and then to night.  The display was truly spectacular!

Several weeks ago (yes, I am that much behind with our fine art posts) I had the opportunity to shoot around Downtown Jacksonville during a notably beautiful evening.  Above is my favorite shot from the evening – the garishly-lit center of the fountain shooting a burst of water 70 feet in the air.  Below are some of my other favorites – feel free to download any of the photos for your desktop wallpaper!
