Entry Description

The Boneyard at Botany Bay in South Carolina, what a beautiful yet mysterious place! I arrived at sunrise on a gloomy, rainy day with a high tide climbing the beach. Slowly, over time, the beach has been pushed and pulled by rising waters, to the extent that the trees along the outer reaches have become one with the ocean creating what is known as the Boneyard. Dead, but visually vibrant trees create an eerie yet compelling story of our environment. While they have held their place in time, time and a rising ocean will soon take them.

About Photographer

For nearly 30 years now, Jack’s passion for photography and been focused on his love for the landscape and our natural environment. Searching for the “Lure of Light” has taken Jack to many remote and unique places as well as enhances his ability to develop “the art of seeing” through both Grande landscape and detailed still life As I continued to reach out, explore and reflect within the serenity of nature, I started to see and feel. Rushing streams soon became the ambient noise affecting calm. Landscape grandeur created the sense of humility. Spring blossoms invigorated, fall colors realized finish and fresh winter snow renewed. Chasing the light of these days is akin to chasing a dream. Sometimes dreams do come true.
