Cabins / Tents

In keeping with the biblical design and purpose these are referred to as tents. The revival design was 99 tents surrounding a tabernacle, as laid out in the bible.

We revisit these sites a few times a year, can’t keep away from the great black and white images we can get here.

 

Sunset Over The Dunes

We went out to see if the sunset would hit the Morris Lighthouse (Charleston Harbor) with any type of interesting colors. Not so much.

Luck was with us for a few moments though. Shooting back into the sun gave a colorful look to the dunes and salt marsh.

Rose Hill Plantation

Rose Hill Plantation located in Union County, South Carolina.

The home of William Henry Gist (August 22, 1807 – September 30, 1874) the 68th Governor of South Carolina from 1858 to 1860 and a leader of the secession movement in South Carolina. He was one of the signers of the Ordinance of Secession on December 20, 1860, which effectively launched the Confederacy and ultimately the US Civil War.

The plantation survived the Civil War because the rivers were flooded at the time the Union Army came through under General Sherman.

Morris Island Light

No longer in use, leaning to the right, a lighthouse has been here 1789. Just prior to the US Civil War the lights here were destroyed by the federal government rather than have it be taken by the confederacy.

The great Charleston earthquake of 1886 damaged the structure but it was repaired enough to be put back in use. Finally in 1960 the land had been washed away and the light decommissioned.

At The Blue Hour

The sun was down, yet there was still some light. This is known as the blue hour. And yes, it was blue.

Both photographs were shot at a slow speed, 1/20, to catch light and the colors.

Both were hand held making my options limited, if I wanted to be in any kind of focus.
