Scott Creek Marsh

Scott Creek Marsh at Low Tide

Scott Creek meanders behind the park and shops along Jungle Road on Edisto Island, South Carolina. The creek runs from Big Bay Creek and St. Helena Sound to the Atlantic Ocean at the north end of Edisto Beach State Park. The salt marshes change appearance with the rise and fall of the tide. At low tide what remains are the muddy etchings of the water's flow, crabs scurrying about and the sucking sound of the mussels now exposed to the air. I was drawn to the curvilinear shape of that shallow ribbon of water in this low tide salt marsh view.

Love those distant hills of green. Never knew that mussels made sucking sounds; how cool is that? Would love to hear that myself one day.
