Auto Show
Gallery: Scenes from Amelia Island

Awaiting awards. Photos by author.

Consider the numbers: not including Cars & Coffee, roughly 300 cars took to the greens at Amelia Island on Saturday, March 11. Counting the shots taken during setup on March 10 (but excluding auction coverage), your humble author shot around 1,900 images of vehicles at the concours. My colleague Terry Shea shot even more, and between the two of us likely walked the distance from Bennington, Vermont, to Fernandina Beach, Florida. At least it felt that way the morning after.

As one would imagine, sorting such a volume of images takes time. Until then, enjoy this gallery of photos selected to present a feel for what the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is all about. It was a great show, and we can’t wait for next year.
