Old Stones, Charleston Cemetery

An old cemetery like this is a never ending source of interesting scenes to photograph.

There are multiple ways I shoot here. A plan around a central subject is fun, but does take work and planning. Another is random items that grab attention. That just about covers the whole place.

These are ‘almost’ random grave markers you can’t ignore.

A Scene We Lose, Spoonbills

This is a scene from a marsh, along the shore, outside Charleston. Another location that will be lost to high end housing… only a few can afford.

In fairness the builders are making major efforts to preserve the areas bordering the development. While cutting down the trees.

This marshland will remain, but I doubt the Spoonbills will.

The good news is we still have miles of ACE Basin preserves for them. However, I shouldn’t even need to be writing this.

Shore Scenes

A few photographs taken as we drift along the small islands and banks. I may have taken close to 600 images on this morning.

The next morning we returned and the light and wind was very different. Which means there may be another small gazillion photographs I have only viewed briefly.

Early Light, Alligator

A local in a dark corner off the trail. Early sunlight on the duck weed gave these shots the extra push.

Best viewed large for the eye reflections.

While it’s hard to see here this is probably a two year old. Size not near what the close lens makes him look. At best a meter long. However, it’s pretty interesting to glance down and get this shot… keeping all my toes too.
