Sunday Series: Low Tide at Daecheon Beach

A series of shots captured during low tide on Daecheon Beach, S. Korea

I spent the first six months of my tenure here in S. Korea living in Boryeong. It was a small and [mostly] sleepy beach town with barely over 100,000 people and wasn’t even remotely close to resembling a city. The lack of better options, coupled with never having lived near an ocean before, often resulted in me walking the 3km length of sand that was sticky and composed of most crushed shells. I thought I understood how tides worked before I moved there, but the drastic shift that would pull the sea half a kilometer away from the coast only to carry it back, crashing against the sea wall, a few hours later (and multiple times per day) surprised me. The ebb revealed many treasures otherwise hidden among the brine. Seaweed stained rocks, half buried ships sucked into the sand, denizens of the deep both alive: hiding and grasping to the last remnants of water in a tide pool, or dead: their remains in mostly in the forms of shells, although once I found a seal carcass. This is a collection (albeit brief) of various objects exposed the world above them.
