Spoonbill By Charleston’s Cooper River

These were taken the first week in September and promptly went to the ‘black hole of photographs’. No reason I can think of since I, like most people, enjoy the big pink birds.

I think the tide was pulling the water back out to the river. This is not a place I would usually associate with Spoonbill, I always think big marshes.

For photographers who don’t want to venture out to places in the ACE Basin they can wander close to home and maybe get a few shots.

Outside Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston.

Looking Over A Marsh

Looking out, and down. The important item is looking ‘down’ from a hill.

This may be one of the highest spots around. For normal environments this means nothing.

We are the Lowcountry…. sea level.

Maps show this spot at an altitude of 75 feet. A mountain !

Hidden Plantation Statue

Behind the Magnolia Plantation there are multiple trails and paths. Most lead through old gardens. A few go off to swamps and the marsh / rice fields.

Through an opening I spotted a statue I don’t remember seeing before. It’s all over grown and almost covered in Spanish Moss.
