I traveled to Folly Beach yesterday afternoon to photograph the sunset on the south end of the island. This is a county park that is used mostly during the summer months by hundreds of people a day. But that came to an end this past summer as erosion has swallowed all but a little remaining sand from the park. The park will not re-open this summer, as they continue to look for ways to re-nourish the beach.
But the thing with photographers is, we still find beauty in all this destruction. This one lone tree now sits 50 feet or so out in the water with the rising tide. It was exactly what I was looking for to go with a magnificent sunset.
