I just returned from a wonderful week at the Isle of Palms in South Carolina. I grew up near here, but had never actually stayed at the beach overnight. It was so nice to just roll out of bed, slide on some sandals and my camera pack to photograph the sunrise. No getting up at 4 a.m. to drive an hour and probably forget something and get my car all sandy on the return. Nope! Island life is glorious.
I, of course, took lots of sunrise images but these were my favorite. When the beach was so empty, it felt like Mother Nature and the paddleboarders were putting on a show just for me.
