Lowcountry Shrimp Dock - HDR

“The photo was taken at the Gay Seafood Company on St. Helena Island. It was a calm, but dreary day. I wasn’t sure how this image would turn out being so overcast, but the cloud cover acted as a light diffuser giving the photo a rich beautiful color.

 

I chose this photo because it encompasses the essence of the Lowcountry. We are a coastal community that abounds in rich marshlands. The abundance of seafood provides an opportunity for locals to make a living harvesting its resources. These quaint yet scenic locations make Beaufort County a must see for anyone visiting the East coast.

 

Here two shrimp boats sit docked in the calm waters of St. Helena Island South Carolina. Seagulls rest on any surface not already occupied.”
