Label Artwork by John Duckworth : "This particular evening was a timed sunset with an astronomical high tide caused by a super moon. The foreground in this image is normally marsh grass, but the tide covered it all and allowed me the luxury of 'walking on water.' Looking out over the Kiawah River, the water was so smooth it reminded me of mercury."
