I like this “boilerplate” image of a walk on Folly Beach not only because of the familiar composition, but also because of the details.
My eye is drawn from the highlights on the cloud, to the roof of the observation deck, across the curling surf to the rising sun reflected on the couple, who are walking in perfect tandem—each touching their toes on the wet sand.
The lighting is clear enough to see the fishermen at the end of the Edwin S. Taylor Folly Beach Fishing Pier. The pier stretches 1,045 ft. into the Atlantic, at the “Edge of America.” The pier is 25 ft. wide and 23 ft. above sea level. It is the second longest on the east coast.
