THE Traveler: Susan Taylor of Blaine.
The scene: A fishing boat cuts across the sea as the day begins in St. Marys, Ga., a charming coastal town on the border with Florida.
The location: St. Marys' downtown "oozes Southern hospitality" and has a "peaceful coastal vibe," Taylor wrote in an e-mail. She also notes that the town is the gateway to Cumberland Island, a barrier island renowned for its protected beaches, maritime forest, weathered estates and the simple, one-room First African Baptist Church. "You can see wild horses running and sea turtles nesting. Ferries depart daily from downtown St. Marys for the island," Taylor added. (For more information on visiting Cumberland Island, which is a national seashore, go to nps.gov/cuis; for details on St. Marys, visitstmarys.com.)
How she got this shot: Taylor used a Nikon D 3400 camera to get this photograph, which captures the sense of peacefulness that pervades St. Marys. "The juxtaposition of the wooden pilings in the foreground and the fishing boat in the background is what I feel makes this photo special. The clouds reflecting in the water is icing on the cake," she wrote.
