Perusing my way through the Destination Guide, I came upon Byrd Island. It sounded intriguing so I went to see for myself.
The land description reads, “Take a step back in time to explore this once inhabited island. The Light house keeper and his family left the island never to return. Could it have been the birds, or something else? Byrd Island is now open for tours.” Indeed, the island was empty of inhabitants, other than the multitude of birds.
Since the island was empty, save for me, I took the opportunity to take some time and experiment with the lens settings as per Myra Wildmist’s blog posts. I was able to get the full sim shot above, though I obviously need some more practice!
The island itself is a bit foreboding, with a windlight that gives it a spooky feel. Add in the ravens flying around everywhere, and you can almost imagine Tippi Hedren running around screaming. 😀
There are lots of nooks and crannies to explore, and since there is no one else about, don’t be shy about poking around.
This would be a wonderful place to take some spooky and/or eerie photos, now that Halloween is fast approaching. 😛
