Ocean Springs was badly damaged during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Many old fishing piers that were damaged during the storm have not been replaced. These old piers make wonderful photographic subjects. The beach runs, for the most part, in an east-west direction. Although it is not possible to get shots with the sun rising or setting in the middle of your frame, you can often compose with the sun rising/setting off to the side of the frame.
