The golden fall light paints the marshes of Botany Bay with rich color beyond the usual green.
Fall takes its time arriving in the Lowcountry, but the gold and haze are characteristic. Heat and lower angled light.
Botany Bay is a state heritage/wildlife management site on Edisto Island, protected and open to the public.
The “Boneyard Beach”, where the trees killed by advancing salt water have fallen, is dramatic and the main attraction for most visitors.
But my favorite sections are the pine and oak woods on the edges of the old fields, and wide open marshes.
