Sunset Over Marsh

I was standing on the eastern end of Folly Island, facing the marsh behind the barrier island. The pool of water in the foreground has been created by the shifting shape of this beach where a low spot has recently been carved out above the normal high tide line. Tidal action and storms continuously change the barrier islands and I won’t be surprised if the next big storm carves a piece of this land into its own island or washes it away completely.

Sun Going Down

This was our first night in the area and I scouted a sunset spot using Google Maps and The Photographer’s Ephemeris phone app. The color was subtle over Brickyard Creek and there wasn’t much of a foreground but it ended up being a pretty good choice.

After the sun disappeared three kayakers  worked their way back to the boat launch, impressed with what they had seen. Voices really carry over water!

Do Dogs Like Sunsets?

Maybe they don’t care, but they sure like walks on the beach!

It was a beautiful end to the day, the tide was out and there was very little breeze. The temperature around 60 degrees F (15 C) belied that it is still winter in South Carolina.
