Hanging Rock

Hanging Rock

Made my way up to Hanging Rock State Park this past weekend. Hiked up with plenty of time to chill and wait for sunset. It was a good hike and a beautiful view.

Now, if I can be like a grumpy old man for a second, let me say that there are two important things that people need to learn:

1: STOP writing on the rocks!! It’s graffiti, it’s ugly, and it’s stupid! No one cares that you were there! Please, take only pictures, leave only footprints…
2: And this one is probably more of a personal opinion, but stop talking so much! Relax and enjoy the view and let others enjoy the peace and quiet

Small rant over :)

Hope you enjoy

Angel Oak

Angel Oak

When I was visiting Charleston for a week, I knew that Angel Oak was on my short list of photography stops. This tree is truly impressive. I’ve seen many photos of this old oak, and none ever do it justice.

I’ve read several different stats about it’s age, but it’s at least several hundred years old and could be quite a bit older. If you get a chance, stop by and see it!

 
Botany Bay Sunrise

Botany Bay

Located on Edisto Island, South Carolina – Botany Bay Plantation offers access to a portion of the beach that was once a forest of large trees. The trees are dead, but the many remains litter the beach. This is one of the most photographed trees on the beach.

This is a long exposure, captured shortly after sunrise with a neutral density filter. I will have more photos of some of the other trees soon!
