Murrells Inlet – Murrells Inlet, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Georgetown County Photos | Murrells Inlet
Murrells Inlet has a population of just under 10,000, but people drive from near and far to dine in the “Seafood Capital of South Carolina.” The town is also known for its Marsh Walk, a one-half mile boardwalk that winds through the marsh and highlights a half-dozen local restaurants.
Reflections on Murrells Inlet
Murrells Inlet native Austin Bond describes the scene of his above photo as follows: “This photo was taken on July 4th. I was at a party on Jordan Landing Road in Murrells Inlet and noticed some teens (friends of mine) stargazing and watching fireworks on the dock next door. I put my camera on top of a dock post (hoping it would not fall in) and set it to take a 30 second long exposure. I asked them to stay as still as possible so they wouldn’t be blurry in the final image. This photo looks photoshopped but it’s not. It actually was very dark so the long exposure setting allowed the camera to absorb any visible light which gives it a surreal look.”
Photographer Benton Henry shares his experience photographing Murrells Inlet: “This sunrise shot of Murrells Inlet shows the ‘skyline’ of Garden City. Quite often when I go on commercial shoots I will arrive very early to see if I can find any interesting scenes for my personal use. The oak tree and marsh seem to perfectly frame the sunrise.”
