Dave, I love this picture because it symbolizes hope and a surviving spirit in the face of adversity. Anyone who has fought a battle with something in life knows what I mean. You have amazing talent - seeing not only what is in the lens but what touches the hearts of your viewers. Carol VanDyke


Thanks so much Carol for your thoughtful insights! You have defined exactly what this picture means to me as well ;-)

Asheville, NC - United States

So dream-like, almost a mist over the water and the one branch almost hand-like dipping into it and feeling the water.


Thanks Jennifer!

Newport News, VA - United States

This is my favorite image because it seems so "otherworldly." It is such as interesting juxtaposition of features of nature that it is not clear on immediate view that it's a beach, but once you look at it a little more closely, you see that. It's an image that you could look at many times and yet see something different each time. Thanks for sharing and for offering your wonderful works for purchasing and for free giveaways!


Thanks so much Karen, it was a surreal scene for sure!

Miamisburg, OH - United States

Thanks Jessica! You should have seen Folly Beach the next morning as Hurricane Irene came ashore, a totally different scene!

Asheboro, NC - United States

This image is almost unreal because of it's beauty! I am amazed at your talent and eye, Dave. Folly Beach is one of the most gorgeous places I've been and was one of my dear Mom's favorite retreats! This brings back wonderful, family memories! Thanks!! Byron


Wow, I am always so happy to hear why people like certain pictures! Many of my pictures actually represent my favorite places as well, but my stories aren't nearly as good as some of the ones I am hearing!

It's getting out there to see them that is a challenge for me, lol!

Pittsfield, MA - United States

Mauldin, SC - United States

Dave~ This is my favorite print (so far) because my favorite vacation with my children was to Folly. We spent hours down at the end of the beach (where your photo was taken) looking for sharks teeth and unique shells. Perfect vacation!


Thanks Marcia! It's one of my new favorite spots too, for some of the same reasons!

Hi Dave...I like this image very much. Isn't it great when the light and the subject come together at the same time. Nice image...Bob


Indeed it is! Not sure I could ever get this one again as the hurricane was necessary here to create the extra big surf needed for the foreground...
