With the thousands of images in our portfolio there are just a handful of this common bird. They are everywhere in the southern marshes, flocks of them. However, they are always squealing and splashing to cover.
Unless I find one, like the above, being calm. I don’t even try.
This is the oldest public cemetery in Charleston, South Carolina. Within the grounds are hundreds of grave sites for Confederate soldiers and sailors. It is also an incredible example of the old southern cemeteries with above ground sites, carved head stones. and early wrought iron fencing.
An eerie feeling is added by the general decay that has set in over the years. Parts of the old section are abandon, others are falling into the surrounding marsh.
The cemetery is usually empty, except for the occasional photographer.
Every time we visit the images are different. This is a location that every photographer visiting Charleston should find. However, always visit when there is wind. The marsh land insects can be very hungry.
