There are dozens of photos of this dock on MikesRightBrain, and I find it one of the most challenging things to photograph because it is so difficult to convey how unique it is. It is long; almost 200 yards, and it meanders over a few interruptions in the landscape. But it is narrow (about 5 feet wide) and simple, and for that reason it becomes a striking yet subtle part of the marsh of the Intracoastal Waterway behind the house on Topsail. The reeds over which it traverses at a height of about four feet catch the light and glow a bright green all day, especially at dawn and dusk. And when the tide goes in and out twice every day, you can see the oyster beds around and beneath the structure. Here is just a part of it...

It's pretty brilliant how you captured it though. I rarely do minimalist stuff like that.
