Well here is something new. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to the US on a number of occasions over the last few years, and of course I’ll always take the opportunity to bring my camera. However, up until today, I have never published a single photograph from any of those trips. So let’s change that, shall we! 🙂
In the summer of 2014 I spent a few days on the coast of Charleston County, and amongst other locations I had a chance to shoot the wonderful Fisherman Pier on Folly Beach at sunrise. Folly Beach is a city located on historic Folly Island, just 11 miles (18 km) south of downtown Charleston and is known by locals as “the Edge of America”.
These wooden fisherman piers are dotted all along the coastline apparently, but this was my first time seeing one in the flesh, so the speak. This was a memorable trip, and I cannot wait to return.
Interestingly (to me at least) this was one of the last images I took with my Canon 5D Mark II, before the switch to the Sony A7r later this same trip. To say there were a few sensor spots, both dust and hot, is an understatement! 😮
