STORY/LOCATION: “Distance” Driftwood Beach, Jekyll Island, GA “Distance” It starts with the drive. The magnetic pull from the iconic beach is undeniable. Into the night, traveling light from stars meets my eye after nearly an hour and 45 min drive from my city to Jekyll Island. Several glances and peeks out of the window occur to check that my weather app is correct. Hours of excitement unfold, photographing until the semblance of dawn, after the short walk through the maritime forest to reach the sculpture-filled strand. Gazing ahead at the newly arisen core, burning brightly above the horizon, from the sands of Driftwood Beach, I walk the landscape, passing each lonely hollowed tree. The mixing and mingling of stars and their positions are captured in motion. Peering into the dark sky’s limitless boundary, looking far across into the distance, forces that hold everything together, light from stars traveling from years gone by, remain a wonderment. Dark patches of interstellar matter’s dark tenuous clouds, stars and dust held together by gravity appear in the band of light. I am swept up into the dusky pull, no matter the distance.
