Folly Beach lighthouse from Folly Beach at low tide.

Beacon

Today turned into an adventure day for the family.  First up was frisbee and swinging at James Island County Park.  Next we explored the Angel Oak on John’s Island.  And last we took a walk on the end of Folly Beach where I spent some time photographing the lighthouse, which has been shored up and repaired to keep it standing.  Years ago you could walk to the lighthouse and even walk up inside.  That all changed with hurricanes like Hugo which forever changed the shoreline.  This area is still one of the most picturesque in all of the lowcountry.

A stormy view from Breach Inlet on Isle of Palms, SC

Storm at the Breach

A storm blew through the area today and I had the time to get out to the beach.  I knew there were some rock jetties at Breach Inlet near Isle of Palms which would work nicely in the images I was looking to capture.  Anyone who loves landscape photography knows that storm light often makes for dramatic photos and this image exemplifies that concept.  These were taken as the remnants of the storm headed out to sea.

For this photograph I drug the shutter a bit using a polarizing filter to slow it down so that I could get a slight blur in the water to imply the motion in the waves.  This is a black and white conversion in Photoshop with a bit of cool blue filter (#80) added on top to add to the stormy mood.

I like the composition with the strong rock at the bottom to anchor the image.  The line of the rock jetty leads the eye out to sea and to the dark storm clouds overhead.
