We loved “Escapes,” now show us “Chasing the Lowcountry Sun”

From Denise Chastain of Goose Creek: Our family escaped to Sanibel Island, Florida. As we were packing to return home, our son, Jack, asked for one last escape to the surf. The early morning light, the clouds, the passing pelicans, and Jack alone in the surf make a lovely photo.

We all need a little escape sometimes, and this week’s photos transported us to beautiful seascapes and also showed us a funny moment.

In total, we received five entries. Next week, we hope to see more.

Despite the small sampling of shots, we were very impressed with what was sent to us. The photo that wowed us the most, though, was taken by Denise Chastain of Goose Creek.

Editors liked the photo’s painterly qualities, along with its dramatic clouds and the birds flying overhead.

Chastain said the photo was taken on Santibel Island, Florida just before her family was packing to head back home to the Lowcountry.

Thank you to all who submitted.

This week, we hope to see many more entries. Don’t be shy, shutterbugs. We want to see as many entries as possible.

Your next assignment is “Catching the Lowcountry Sun.”

This can apply to anything, from sunsets scenes to how you like to enjoy the sunshine here in the Lowcountry.

Get creative.

This theme is open to interpretation, and we love seeing the way people interpret these themes in unique ways.
