BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

A few years ago, photographer Alex North began posting photos of the coast on Facebook and picked up thousands of followers.

Next he put together a calendar featuring his favorite pictures. And now, North has released a book of his images, Mississippi Coast Blessings. 

"I shoot every morning and every night. I stop and look at what's being presented to me. I feel good about the landscape and architecture of nature. You know you are blessed," said Alex North.

Iconic images of coastal Mississippi's natural beauty come from the heart and soul of the photographer; who feels he's on a mission to capture nature and share it with others through is photographs.

"It's my testimony. I'm sharing what God gives to us. It's absolutely beautiful," North said.

Motivated by a higher power, North chose appropriate scripture to introduce each chapter of his book. North has a knack for being in the right place at the right time, which he says is the key to catching color, dramatic weather and wildlife.  

 "I'm not saying I'm a weatherman, but I know when something is getting ready to happen based on conditions that are present. I have a good feel for how the sun is going down and how the lighting will play. I understand wildlife and where they'll move to and how to approach them," North added. 

On Tuesday Nov. 17 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., North will be signing copies of his book the Biloxi Visitor's Center.
