Editor’s note: This Sunday we are taking another look back to honor Lea Gallardo one of our many favorite photographers.  Lea is an early riser and rarely misses a day at Main Beach where she captures the morning sunrise.  Over the years, we have posted a number of Lea’s photographs.  Here is one of our favorites. 

Lea Gallardo developed a love of photography at a very young age. Not until photography and computers “joined forces” did Lea become completely involved in photography. For a number of years, Lea shared her talents with the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival.

After 47 years in the Washington, D.C. area where Lea owned a group of stores, she became a full-time resident of Fernandina. We thank Lea for her many contributions to the Fernandina Observer.

Photographers can submit their photos to [email protected] The Fernandina Observer Incorporated is committed to protecting the copyright and intellectual property of others. Content provided to Fernandina Observer must be content that does not violate copyright or intellectual property of others.
