Travel theme: Pastel

Having just returned from our yearly trek to Pawleys Island, South Carolina, we’re naturally looking through our pictures to see what to cut and keep.  Not an easy task, of course, since neither of us wants to pitch out a sunrise or sunset. And we’ve even posted once this week on the DailyPost Weekly Photo Challenge: Narrow a shot of a boardwalk leading to a creek dock.  But what could be more perfect for another challenge this week from Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack: Travel Theme: Pastel than a series of creek docks bathed in the soft hues of pinks, blues, and purples as the sun goes down?

So, with that in mind, we’re showing you a bunch — or several, as it may be — of one favorite creekside dock located near the house we rent.  We love it.  Not because we get to use it — we don’t.  But because we can stand in the street, gaze at it longingly, and admire its one distinguishing asset:  a South Carolina logo weathervane.  Here it is: three stages of sundown pastel glory. Enjoy!

    Beautiful! I love beach sunset photos, and like you, Rusha, can’t seem to edit mine. No matter how similar they are I still find something unique about each one.

  2. Quite pastel— and beautiful. I’m with you. How do you ever throw out a beautiful sunrise or sunset picture. I must have hundreds (or thousands?) 🙂 –Curt

    You can never have too many photos of sunsets!

    • I agree. We go every summer, and I say to Bert, “I’m not going to take any more pics this year. We have enough of Pawleys.” And then, of course, I have to have one more . . . and one more . . . Oh, well. The older I get the more I appreciate this gorgeous earth.

  5. Stunning sunset, I can quite see why you rent there.

    • It’s a quiet place, for the most part. And the scenery is unspoiled. Nothing commercial is allowed on the beaches or marshes, so it’s about as natural as you get. We love it. Thanks for commenting.
