The Apache Pier in Myrtle Beach is a great place to take a stroll and admire the Atlantic Ocean. It has the distinction of being the longest wooden pier on the East Coast, and in addition to fishing, it also offers live entertainment on its covered stage. The pier is part of the Apache Family Campground, and it is open 365 days a year.
Austin Bond, who contributed the stunning sunrise shot above, describes the scene: “During high school and college I loved taking scenic photographs of sunsets. I’m really not a morning person but I thought it might be neat to experience a sunrise and capture it on film. I photographed a few sunrises while spending a week at the beach and this was my favorite one. I was impressed with how beautiful a sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean was. Of course, after taking a few photographs I crawled back in bed (I was on vacation you know).”
