The Boneyard

At the risk of being cliche’, I’ll add my “boneyard” image to the plethora of others on the off chance some of my blog readers have not see one.  The “boneyard” or Botany Bay, is near Edisto Beach in South Carolina.   Depending on the tide, you’ll find a few trees in the water creating, well, a picture of a tree in the water!   So there ya have it!

 For smoothing out the water, I used my Singh-Ray VariND filter.  If you want even longer exposures, you can use the ultra cool Mor-Slo 10 stop filter.

    beautiful John…I’m so jealous…when I was there last month, it was dead low tide and the water was way out…past the trees! The wind was blowing about 40 mph too and not a cloud in the sky…Guess I’ll have to go back..

    As striking as this image is, what catches one’s attention is the freakishness of the subject. Trees don’t grow in seawater. Of course this tree is long dead. We wonder where the coast line was when it was growing. Maybe a 1/4 mile further out? The image captures, A Changing Earth – In Progress.

    Another dandy, John, and a place for this Iowan to add the the bucket list. Thanks for sharing.

    I have long called a tree without leaves the bones of the tree. I have never been here but I am inspired to go. In the winter here in ND we have lots of opportunities to get the bones of the trees. I did an abstract today.

      I would think ND would have LOTS of opportunities for bones of the tree. Thanks for stopping by the blog.
