Somewhere Down South

I shot this image a few years ago on one of our trips in the South, I believe we were headed to St. Augustine on our Honeymoon trip after our wedding. This was on a back road, I have no idea where we were at but this long driveway caught my eye when we drove past and I pulled the car over and took some hots with my infrared camera. These have been sitting in my archives for a while and I stumbled upon it the other day while going through files.

For whatever reason, it did not catch my eye when I first shot it but when I looked at this recently I really liked the feel of this one, especially in Black and white. I suspect if I lived down South this is the kind of entrance I would want for our house.

 

Thanks for Stopping!

Botany Bay Reflections

1-2015 Botany Reflections

Botany Bay Reflections

If you are ever near Edisto Island South Carolina I would suggest a stop at Botony Bay, it is a hidden little gem on the Island that once was home to three plantations. It is now a wildlife management area. The actual entrance is a bit hard to find but when you do you are greeted by volunteers to fill out a short form for a pass to be on the property. It is a beautiful area to say the least, full of wildlife, gators and the best part is a stretch of untouched beach that is just awesome. The beach is littered with all kinds of shells, from small to large. They have volunteers watching the main beach entrance through the day as taking shells, driftwood or anything for that matter is strictly prohibited.

We spent some time shooting on the beach, although it was very sunny and harsh as we were there around mid day, I am going to try to get back here for a sunrise when I get down that way again.

With the map they provided we drove around the historic plantation locations and ran into this guy sunning himself-

It was pretty cool seeing this badass gator in the wild, he did not seem to mind us much though. Although we did not stick around long with the look we were getting.

Thanks for stopping!
