It was another successful trip to Myrtle Beach, another successful visit to see the family that moved down there. George and I had a great time, went and saw some very cool…and kitschy…stuff (blogs on things we did while visiting, coming up), and spent the old QT with the fam. Double-QT, as both my brother and G’s niece live down there, and both sides of the family get along. It was all one grand time. Awesome.
And, as I am busy trying to rebuild my photo portfolio since losing my external hard drive (yes, people, I’m on the cloud now–unlimited photo storage for Amazon Prime members! Hooray!), it meant I had to get up early and head to the beach for a second Myrtle Beach sunrise photo shoot. There are worse things to have to do with one’s time.
It was kind of a cloudy morning, but I caught all the sun almost anyone could see, that morning. By 10:30 it had completely clouded over and was gray and drizzly all the rest of the day. Here’s to the benefits of early rising! All photos were taken alongside the pier at Surfside Beach.
I’m including more photos than I normally would, and don’t have a ton of narrative.
Because mostly, the pictures speak for themselves.
Speaking of birds…
I almost started to think, maybe this was as good as it was going to get, with the weather looking sketchy.
Then I started to see the sun peek out a little.
And a little more.
And then…holy pockets!
This clear patch of sky is the definition of “window of opportunity”.
And the low clouds helped keep the light golden.
I had to check out how things looked under the pier.
And from the other side.
For a moment things lightened up and started to look suspiciously like a Monet painting.
And then? Le BOOM! Back to gold.
Though the sun was getting ready to disappear for the rest of the day…
…it sure put on one hell of a show for me when it showed its glorious face.
I hope you enjoyed the sunrise! I know I did.
