Dog Island Late Afternoon 30 X 40"
Dog Island is the northern most portion of Kiawah Island and has been left untouched by developers of the Kiawah Island Company. Large grassy areas are broken by stands of red cedar and wax myrtles. Small tributaries to the Creek that empties into the Stono inlet wind through this area. This is scene was taken in the late afternoon with long shadows. Variable different grasses with variable different colors are making the afternoon shadows very attractive. The stands of myrtles and cedars standout in the landscape. Blue skies with pink and white cumulus clouds are frequently found over the ocean as one looks out onto the Atlantic. White tailed deer and raccoons share this part of the Island and are frequently seen even during the daylight hours, but especially in the late afternoon.
