Boneyard Beach is named for the driftwood that is pulled in on the tide and deposited on the beach to be bleached bone white by the sun, salt and sand. It's a quick 30-minute excursion from Isle of Palms Marina and well worth the trip. The island really lights up as the sun sets, drawing long shadows on the "bones" that litter the beach.
Sullivans Island and Charleston harbor are so peaceful it's hard to imagine the first shot of the Civil War was fired here when a shell fired from a 10-inch mortar burst just 100 feet above Fort Sumter, seen on the left of the horizon in this photograph.
The fort in the foreground is Fort Moultrie and the bridge in the background is the beautiful Ravenal Bridge.
This photograph was captured with a DJI Phantom 2 drone with a GoPro Hero3+ Black and then converted to a Plotagraph. You can see reviews of all of my gear at Kit.com/Spangard.
Here's another view of the Wild Dunes Boardwalk pool that I featured a few days ago. This time with a little more context. It seems a fitting farewell to summer as we enter into Labor Day weekend.
