Low tide creates a surreal landscape at Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island, Georgia
Jekyll Island is one of the beautiful Atlantic barrier islands off the coast of Georgia (US). Beach erosion on the north end of the island has created Driftwood Beach, a surreal boneyard of dead pine and oak trees, with gnarled branches, upturned roots, and arching trunks.
The location is popular with photographers and weddings are not uncommon on the beach. It even made a 2016 appearance on the popular zombie apocalypse show "The Walking Dead."
As you can see from these photos, Driftwood Beach is quite a dramatic setting. Get there early for a quiet walk among the boneyard. Arrive later and you’ll probably be sharing the beach with crowds of people.
Fine art black and white prints are available of any image in the Driftwood Beach portfolio.
