A “Boneyard beach” is the popular term for the driftwood or weathered remains of shoreline trees that have fallen from an eroding maritime forest. They are often strewn like a sculpture of limbs as they gradually wash into the ocean. We visited Hunting Island State Park near Beaufort, South Carolina yesterday and found just such a place.
We figured that we had seen enough of the area, and on the way to the car we met a park ranger. Marcy asked what there might be for photographers and he showed us to a nearby path, telling us that a half-mile ahead was a nice boneyard beach. We had to brave a swarm of mosquitos as we traveled through the swamp seen below, but the destination was worth it. I had to do quite a bit of processing to isolate this particular tree, but I thought it made a nice image.
