Down the back path, Magnolia Plantation building.
Sometimes it gets a little drafty, but we do have a nice view.
The romantic garden at Magnolia Plantation, has this, the Proposal Bridge. And yes, hundreds proposals. Photographers, including us, have also been on hand to capture the moment.
Flowers still bloom in Charleston, South Carolina.
Old Magnolia Plantation building wall provided the background.
The exposure here was taken from the bright background. I wanted to keep the foreground dark. It was an experiment to see how a new lens would handle contrasts.
When I shot the photograph I only knew of one bird, the second on top was pretty much hidden.
Ultimately I finished the image much lighter than planned, which gave this odd flat look.
Not really sure how I feel about the photograph overall, but I did learn a little more about the lens.
Photographed at Charles Towne Landing.
This was part of our new equipment tests. Though not at all what we started out to do.
Charles Towne Landing is the site of the original city of Charleston. The location itself was one of those ‘What Where We Thinking’ times and everyone moved before the swamp critters and disease got all of them.
This Bobcat is in the section where a few native animals are kept. This cat has a large section and found a tree top where (almost) no one is around.
Taken with a Canon mount Tamron 18-400 mm lens. This series of tests I was happy with.
The old bones on the shore here make such great images. Fall in New England we shot the changing colors, here in the lowcountry it’s the changing sky.
