Jon Crispin's Notebook

South Carolina Beach

Posted in Family, Landscape, Nature, Uncategorized, Water by joncrispin on 12/03/2013

Cris and I celebrated our 25th anniversary yesterday with a very long walk on the beach.  It was a beautiful day and the light was perfect for me.  And as you can see, it was mostly deserted.

When we walk, I am constantly stopping to take photos.  She usually just keeps moving but I eventually catch up.

Some of these guys are really tiny.  The shell on top with the red bit was no more than an inch across.  The guy above was probably 3 inches.

I have only occasionally seen the above type of shell.  Reminds me of an exotic African cat.

This shell was very small, but  so beautiful.

There is usually quite a bit of plant matter laying about.  We saw what was left of a huge palm tree at the high tide line.  I am not sure if the plant above is a water or land based plant.

Sand dollars are somewhat rarer this year.  We didn’t see any until yesterday.

I say it to people all the time when I am complimented about my photographs, because it is important for me to give credit where it is due.  I absolutely could not do what I do without the constant support and encouragement from Cristine.  Not just emotionally, but in  practical terms as well.  She works very hard at a demanding job to provide us with all the things that a photographer with a spotty income could never provide.  For that and the last 25 years I am more grateful than I can say.

    I live here in Charleston, and your photos of the beach are better than what I see daily

    I love these photos. Reminds me of the times I spent in Oregon with my Dad when I was young. The beach is such a peaceful place!
