I was sitting on the couch reading a book, my dad was playing golf game, and my mom was in the kitchen cooking pizza. I had the sudden urge to get up and go catch the sunset on Folly beach. I made my dad go with me.
It was about a ten minute drive and luckily I found a parking spot right next to the path leading to the beach. That rarely happens
The sun was just starting to set and it was getting pretty cold and windy, but I’ll tough anything out for a good picture.
There was a couple hanging in a hammock under the Folly Beach pier. They were adorable and put so much character into my photos.
If you ever to go Folly Beach, you must go under the Pier and take a photo. It’s tradition.
Luckily I had a zoom on the camera and wasn’t close enough to creep them out.
But seriously. Adorable. (Not sure about those socks though)
I love that beaches still have the old telescopes. It gives the pier a vintage feel, or maybe it’s just the filter.
I nearly burnt my eyeballs taking photos of the sun. I couldn’t see for like an hour after taking photos and I know that can’t be healthy.
The beach was pretty clear, but the silhouettes of the beach walkers made me happy.
You have our standard couple walking the beach, lady and dog, and random man.
I went up on the Pier to take photos next. Boy was it cold up there!
The view was worth it.
The sound of the waves were so tranquil and therapeutic.
I felt bad for my dad because he wore shorts and by the time we were at the end of the Pier, his legs were numb. We went from freezing to feeling absolutely nothing.
There wer a lot of fisherman out on the pier too.
I’m used to seeing seagulls by the sea, but never black birds. I thought it was kind of neat. And then The Beatle’s song got stuck in my head for the rest of the night.
It feels like forever waiting for the sun to set, but once it sets, it goes down faster than the blink of an eye.
It starting getting even colder and so we walked back towards the shore.
More birds flocked towards the Pier. I think they enjoy the sunset as much as I do.
I took the flash off the camera and picked up the natural color of the sky
This is an untouched photo. I just want to jump back into the moment.
Do you think if you lived on the beach, you’d ever get sick of it? I don’t think I could.
My dad took me on the back routes home and we went down stress with all the gorgeous trees. I’m going to go find some more today to take photos of.
Before we left, I took a shot of the moon. I’ve never captured a moon so clear!
