Moon Creek Gallery Opens in Grayton Beach

Moon Creek Gallery

There’s a new gallery in Grayton Beach, Florida that features the fine art photography of Kurt Lischka.

Kurt has been capturing the beauty of the South Walton for more than three decades, sharing thousands of images online since founding Moon Creek Studios in 1998, and in 2004.

“Like many people I’ve been drawn to the shore my entire life. The patterns, textures, and rhythms of the beach thrill me,” said Lischka.

Inside the gallery is a wide range of photos that represent the beach life – waves, sunsets, dunes, flora, wildlife, environmentally sensitive landscapes and South Walton’s rare coastal dune lakes. Gracing the walls also are abstact images that capture the interesting details and emotion of coastal life.

Images in the gallery are printed on fine art paper, canvas, metal, and wood and presented in a variety of ways including traditional frames, tapestries, and unique table top metal prints on unique driftwood stands. Also for sale are notecards, postcards and other gift items. There is also SoWal logo gear on hand such as T-shirts, hats and other items.

Weatern Lake

The Heritage Series is comprised of images on fine-art canvas framed in heritage wood.

“Each of our heritage wood frames is handcrafted from select planks milled from massive cypress logs, lost for more than a century at the bottom of the Choctawhatchee River right here in Walton County,” said Lischka.

Moon Creek gallery hours are 10am to 4 pm weekdays, or by appointment, 1414 Co Road 283 South, Grayton Plaza, Grayton Beach, Florida. Call 850-231-0102.

Commercial Photography at The Bay Restaurant

The Bay is another excellent establishment from restaurateur Jim Shirley, who also owns and operates Great Southern, Meltdown on 30A, and 45 Central Wine Bar in Seaside. The Bay is a special place at the foot of the 331 bridge in South Walton County, Florida – it has boat parking, a sandy beach, live music, rustic decks, excellent bar(s), and of course amazing food.


Destin Diner Photos

Recently Oli Petit, owner of the Red Bar in Grayton Beach, has remodeled the long-vacant Destin Diner. He’s added his flair for decor to a great central location and has added his usual concern for detail with excellent service, food, and drinks. Moon Creek Studios had the pleasure of following the process, producing images and a website for the diner.

South Walton Night Photography

Night photography is fun. I like getting creative with dusk and night photography. It’s a challenge and allows more ways to post process to try different colors and effects. Night photography of homes and commercial building is challenging with so many different types of lighting, you never know what you might get. For me, the crazier, more colorful and varied the better. I love shooting photography for events at night and photography of real estate at night.


Alys Beach Photos

I’ve had the privilege of photographing Alys Beach from the very beginning and watching the new town grow. It’s an endless source of fascination with the beautiful natural landscape, construction, and finished product.


Apalachicola Fisheye Trip

Apalachicola is a great trip for a photo safari. There’s plenty to see and plenty to shoot in a compact area. All of the antiques, decay, patterns, textures, food, art and colors of the place lend to fisheye lens fun.

WaterSound Beach Compass Point

WaterSound Beach is possibly the finest location on the Emerald Coast. The amazing views of the dunes and Gulf are hard to beat from the round window wall of the living area at this Compass Point condo.
