Morning came early for those of us on the Charleston Charm photo tour. And what a wonderful morning it was. We went to the Botany Bay Boneyard on the Atlantic Ocean for sunrise. While at first it appeared that a thick cloud bank on the horizon might keep sunrise colors at a minimum, we were lucky when some color finally appeared, along with patches of blue sky.
We were also lucky that it was low tide, breezy, and no biting insects on patrol. We spent a couple of hours exploring along the waterline, and viewing the gnarly dead trees in the vicinity.
We decided to go light, with no tripods, and each person was able to capture some fantastic images. We will return there this evening for sunset, with high hopes of being rewarded with even more great photo opportunities.
Wishing you a safe and happy holiday weekend.
