Coastal Adventures

Raw Beauty – The Eye of Tropical Storm Andrea

I went out to the beach as Tropical Storm Andrea came overhead. I had heard that the swells would be 8+ feet and I had to see that. We always get an influx of surfers and it makes for some excellent entertainment even in a little rain. The wind was howling […]

Botany Bay is an incredible region of untouched beauty. That is to say, it is untouched by man. As a Heritage Preserve it is a protected area, and it feels raw! It’s refreshing to go to a place like that and experience nature as it should be.

For me this image is about the mood that is created by the clouds and water and the almost lack of color except for the sun. I also dig it’s […]

Folly Beach, SC
