Some evenings the sky is filled with color, others a golden glow. Either way a walk with a camera is always an adventure.
A layer of clouds hid the sunset, we still had soft light along the shoreline.
The coast is filled with inlets, creeks, and rivers here. It’s a highway for Brown Pelicans.
A few random shots from a walk on the Charleston shore.
I think he was enjoying the view too.
In the fall, end of day, is probably the best time of year on the shore.
Yes, you will still find a few people around. usually not enough to matter.
Charleston, South Carolina.
One of those small Sandpipers that scurry through the surf in little chaotic groups. They seem to never stop moving.
They are in the Lowcountry fall and winter. They change to a rusty coloring in the summer…and live in the arctic.

Taken end of day, the usual low light glare and colors.
Found in the dunes along the shore.
Folly Island, South Carolina.
Losing the day but still plenty of glare from the low sun.
Willet walking through the surf.
I don’t want to ignore the local shore birds. In January when it gets a little cool and windy there will be fewer shots like this though.
