Flood warnings have been posted all along the South Carolina coastline today due to a super high tide. Far from wanting to flee the in-coming tide, Bruce and I rushed to the end of our street to see what the high tide would do to Pawleys Island Marsh. In short, it turned it into a gigantic mirror. With no place to go, many of the marsh birds huddled together on bits of debris like a still life stranded between an infinite sea and sky. It was beautiful. When I finally got around to reviewing the photos I had taken, I thought I had mistakenly set my camera on a black and white setting. They were all nearly near monochromatic. But no, it was just that I was so focused upon capturing the photo ops before me that I failed to notice the lack of color in the scene. I love how the gray-scale quality of the sky and water amplifies the stark nearly abstract design of the solid objects.
