Very Large Post:: Very Good Fall

Folly hasn't looked like Folly lately. We literally have had waves plus offshore to no winds for the past month give or take. It's been a little gutless at times but there have been some really fun sessions. Yesterday we had our first heavy fog. That time of year.

I've captured a lot of pictures not only of the waves we've been getting but also the beach itself the past few days.

On the other hand the tides have been massive. From the hurricane swells we've had this season I'd say, judging from the boardwalk pylons, the beach has lost an average of over a foot and a half of sand. I took the above picture just because I thought the tree was precariously hanging over the edge of the dunes, ready to take a plunge. It was too foggy to take surf pictures so I went for a surf. Middle of the session I hear a big splash....

The tide was so high yesterday one of the new palm trees the city planted at the second walkover fell victim to the sea.

Waters been deep enough you can start paddling right off the stairs

Waves break so close to shore now

"Photographers" are coming out of the woodwork. Lately I have seen a million people with
telephoto lenses at the Washout. Where are all the Nikon people?

"Gary what'd ya get? I got the youngster in the red swimming costume!"
"Oh, the young fella wearing the red trunks! How about you Linda?"
"The young man wearing the red bathing suit!"

(not hating...have a laugh. Leave a comment if you really feel the need)

Spike strip for the Folly Beach Public Safety ATV...no open containers people. Lot's of sand gone.

Ok, the part you all scroll down to. The Waves. In no particular order except the order in which I took these (most recent to oldest).

Pelican's got competition

Another example of how close the waves were breaking to shore

Last Word:

Honestly I don't like watermarking pictures, it takes away from the picture's true meaning and effectively ruins the shot. Recently I have seen my pictures on other websites. This makes me truly happy that someone would take the time to post my pictures on another online photo album. I just ask for one thing: give me some credit. Link my blog or put my name on there; easy as pie.

  1. Quality post. Quality pictures!

  2. Shaka for the photos.

    The header needs some work.Reminds me of a few of these:

    Did you take the photo for the Thomas Bros header?

  3. I'm thinking of having a header that changes all the time. Going to try and keep it fresh. So you'll only need your barf bag for a little longer. And yeah I took the picture for the Thomas Bros but Bryant made all the pretty colors.

    Thanks for the comment!

  4. Didn't mean it that harsh. Looking forward to seeing the new stuff.
