Medusa Tree

Posted: June 25, 2012 in Nikon D40, South Carolina

I took this shot while I was on vacation at Edisto Island, South Carolina. The name of the beach is Botany Bay, and it is a little off the beaten path. Botany Bay is a Wildlife Management Area that has only been maintained by the Department of Natural Resources since 2008; and as a result, the beach is pretty unspoiled.  As you walk toward the northern end of the beach, you start to see more and more oak trees stranded out in the ocean. They refer to this section as “the boneyard” because there are no leaves or anything on the branches, and the driftwood on the beach is bleached out. It’s an amazing place for photography. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get here for a sunrise, and I had not been doing my HDR stuff at this time either, so this is just a pretty standard picture.
