A Day at the Beach

Clouds and Beach, Kiawah Island, SC  © Doug Hickok


Summer clouds reflect in glistening shallows along a beautiful stretch of beach at Kiawah Island. This barrier island offers the most pristine beach along the South Carolina coast. On the horizon you can see a thin line of sand dunes where clusters of sea oat colonies thrive. 



A day at the beach like this is ideal for flying kites, hunting for sand dollars, or bowling. 
Or maybe even tiddlywinks.

  1. What an amazing summer image Doug--I love the blue gradient and the horizontal symmetry. This looks like such a fantastic place to laze away the summer.

  3. All of the above, Doug: flying kites, hunting for sand dollars, bowling or maybe even tiddlywinks. Perfect for an image like this is the summertime. I love the thought.

  7. Glorious clouds and reflections. Not really a very interesting photo but a wonderful shout of "It's a beautiful Day!" And certainly a better use of time than tiddleywinks.

  15. I've been away for a couple weeks, but I'm glad for the chance to get back and try to catch up. I see you're keeping busy on your blog.

    Looked back over several of your recent posts and enjoyed them. I do love a day at the beach and you sure caught that light great on the jetty. Great shots, all of them.
