First Sun at Hunting Light II

Hunting Island Lighthouse-Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina

Hunting Island State Park is located just 16 miles east of the historic town of Beaufort and is one of the most popular and beautiful beaches in South Carolina. This 5,000 acre park and it’s 3 miles of natural beach hosts more than a million visitors a year.

It’s a place where you can truly find yourself again. It’s a place where humans and nature have always seem to co-exist. From Pirates to State Park Hunting Island got its name when the island was once used by the locals for hunting deer, waterfowl and raccoon. Hunting Island, as well as Beaufort, were a popular layover spot for sailors and pirates, including Blackbeard and his crew.

This was a shot I grabbed just after sunrise on my way out of the park to grab breakfast back at the B&B.

Thanks for stopping

  1. Looks like a nice place for a vacation, for sure! Good work!

  2. Great shot, Mike! Man, how I’d love to be there right now. :-)

  3. So that is what it looks like early. My non-photographer friends (and wife) don’t get up early. Great shot Mike.
