Somewhere about 3years ago said: But on the other hand, death is serene and a release from suffering, which so many trees do these days.
Somewhere about 3years ago said: I lean towards eerie. The hands of a drowning being reaching out for help. Like nature in general is reaching out for our compassion and our understanding.
Nebraska about 6years ago said: Thank you, Laura. In one sense, it's serene, and in another sense, it's kind of eerie. I haven't quite decided how I feel about it.
Brasil about 6years ago said: Jim, I am looking to this photo and I don t say what I can write....
I am thinking about these trees, the sky and the water.....
I loved everything. : )
Nebraska about 6years ago said: Rob, thank you! Boneyard Beach is a nickname for Edisto Beach just south of Charleston S.C. It's such an iconic scene, there are lots of ways to shoot it. It was hard to choose from about 30 images, but this is the one I chose. I'm glad you like it!
