Wednesday saw Bruce and I getting up at 2 am to join a photo shoot on Bull Island, SC sponsored by the Seacoast Artists Guild. Fifteen members of the Guild met at Pawleys Island to car caravan to Garris Landing.
From there we picked up a ferry which would take us both ways
to and from the leeward landing on Bulls Island .
From there we all piled in an open air truck which transported across the island
From there we all piled in an open air truck which transported across the island to Boneyard Beach on the Atlantic coast in time to see the sunrise
to Boneyard Beach on the Atlantic coast in time to see the sunrise.
Ostensibly photographing the sunrise was the main purpose of the trip.
Not too surprisingly most of the participants, including my husband Bruce, were photographers; only a couple of us were painters by avocation. I'm sure many of the images caught by the camera folk will be much better quality photographs than mine
but I am happy with my results. What my pictures may lack for in photographic skills, they more than made up for as reference material for future paintings
Part of the 62,000-acre Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge,the secluded beaches of Bulls Island, South Carolina
has something for everyone including photographers, a painters
or those who just want to get away for a day of exploring. All too soon we had to return to the mainland.
Goodbye, Bull Island. We'll miss you.
