Last week we went out to shoot sunsets along the ACE Basin estuaries. All through the area are a series of barrier islands sitting between the mainland and Atlantic Ocean. Most are not populated, except by the wildlife.
We were lucky to have had rain on the horizon which makes for great dramatic sundowns.
This part of the coast usually will have at least one hurricane each fall. Some of the islands are hit often, and yet a few closer to the land are almost always protected.
Each island constantly changes due to wind and storms. Up until now they have remained above the water line.
For landscape photographers these areas have the holy grail of scenery…the bone yard. Dead, or bare trees, on the shore to use within sunrise photographs.
Trick is to get there.
