Edisto Island is one of many small islands along the south eastern coast of the USA.

The beach has been allowed to remain relatively untouched. No beach combing is permitted so it's littered with shells. One special thing is that the beach keeps getting eroded and the woods along the water line get caught and rot. This leaves a number of dead trees sticking out of the sand and along the water.

It's all Roger's fault that I even went there!
I went before dawn, hoping for a good sunrise but it turned out to be a very muted sunrise without much color. It still was quite an interesting experience.

I'm not a tenth as skilled as he, though, but I did come away with a few semi-decent shots.

C&C definitely welcome and appreciated. I enjoyed the place and will most likely go back since it's not all that far away for me.

Great series, although for me it comes alive at the last two. The reason is the reflections in the sand which make the image a bit less dark, but also more exciting. Think i prefer #5 because one can just see the sun. Too bad one of the branches just touches the border here. TFS Sashi .

Very nice series Sashi. #5 is my favourite. I think what I find appealing is the dark-colourless foreground silhouette nicely complementing the intense colour of the distant orange glow of sunrise through the clouds.
C & C always welcome

Love the last two - #5 for its overall framing and composition, and #6 for that starburst sun caught in the fork of the branches.
TFS.

Florida landscapes are tough and donít typically show up in many best of landscape shots. Typically you need a great sky to make them worthwhile. If I was at the scene you witnessed I would have made the sky 1/3 or even less of the photo as you caught a very bland morning. I might have also taken better advantage of that little pool of water that was giving a reflection. Good series nonetheless and thanks for sharing

That's a beautiful set of images!

My favorites are #2, #4 and #5, The clouds are generally very impressive - as are the early morning light and mood.

TFS!

Thanks for the comments and feedback.

Yeah, I see the point of including less of the bland sky and also taking advantage of little pools for reflections. Will keep that in mind.

Yup, I was thrilled at the starburst poking out from between the branches, too.

For anyone living in the southeastern US or visiting Charleston, this would be an interesting place to stop by. Full pants and full sleeves, please! The buggies out there would bleed a T.Rex to death. More than half the time I was doing the Macarena trying to ward off the flies.

That is one of the most important pieces of feedback for a location I have ever read!

My wife would be eaten alive there.....

Best regards, Neil.

The addition of the last two shows #7 has a beautiful composition. Easily the best in this series of 8.
