Dawn breaks over the Atlantic Ocean, where one has an ideal view from the Edwin S. Taylor Fishing Pier. The pier, located on Folly Beach, the self proclaimed "Edge of America", is the second longest pier on the east coast.

This image is the cover shot for Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission's Landmark Pier brochure.
