In keeping with past articles showing some details of where we shoot, this is Botany Bay a wild life management area. It is part of the ACE basin we have documented in the past (325,00+ acres).
There is an ocean beach here, this being the edge of the basin facing the ocean. However, it is a 45 minute walk to the beach and it is gone at high tide. Recent hurricanes have changed the landscape considerably.
Above, one of the dirt roads that run through the area. This one passes the ruins of an old plantation, only the brick foundation remains.
Landscape here changes between woods, marsh, and finally open tidal inlets.
The above image is from the banks of a tidal inlet, this is low tide. Wildlife is plentyful, click and enlarge above to see a few Heron and Egret moving through the shallows.
This shot is taken from the same spot, same inlet. The ‘rocks’ here in the fore ground… oyster shells, millions. This is covered during high tide. Oh yeah, careful walking out here. Little Fiddler Crabs are a carpet under foot.
Once the tide is up the depth is high enough for the Dolphin to come up stream and feed here.
Next visit I should try for a few more wide shots, it’s a wonderful place and different than most of my other ‘haunts’.
