Shrimp Boat at Sunrise / Hunting Island
Photo of the Month / Eric Horan
December/ 2011 Lowcountry Calendar
There was a light drizzle falling on my morning photo plans to visit Hunting Island. Often rainfall provides me an excuse to sleep in, but clearing skies were on the forecast.
Everything about Hunting Island that morning was dark and ominous. The sand was heavy with rain, a ceiling of black clouds filled the sky and appeared to hang over the working shrimp boat along the horizon. I was taken by the sole shrimp boat dragging his nets in defiance of the threatening skies – much as the SC shrimp industry is doing, for their fair share in the marketplace against a flood of competition - now global. I raced down the beach to frame the boat with the storm clouds to create balance and hopefully, a story with the composition.
