Sunrise on Hilton Head Island

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Charles Young

When on vacation, I usually like to shoot sunsets with the sun setting directly into the ocean, but on the U.S. East coast, that can’t happen. On our first vacation to Hilton Head Island, one morning I was up before dawn and caught an equally beautiful sunrise from behind a sand dune with its reeds showing.
