Found On A Walk, Old Charleston Cemetery

Walking through the old sections of southern marsh cemetery.

Every walk should be a slow meandering trip here. You will miss things like this.

Rust, and some ruin, have hit the old wrought iron fences. However it just adds a bit more interest and beauty.

Great Blue, Open Water

Great Blue Heron passing by low over a marsh pond.

So…

This is called a pond in the Lowcountry, in Maine too. Elsewhere it’s a lake. To add confusion one large, miles long  side turns into marshlands. So technically it’s a marsh pond.

One of the many things different down here.

Above a Great Blue jumped up and passed by quickly. The angle from the dike was perfect for a simple background. I was able to catch several Herons flying by right here, as well as back over in the (real) marsh.

Lately the Great Blues have been out further in the reeds, but now Storks and Spoonbills moved closer. That’s about how it works every fall.

Along Main Street USA

Not much has changed since my last walk through this Main Street. I believe it was around 2 years ago.

We can’t blame this on the Pandemic economy. It was exactly like this before Covid.

Outside of these towns the strip malls, some shopping centers, are filled, a few thrive.

I shoot in B&W for drama, so that needs to be considered when viewing images like these. However it doesn’t change the fact Main Street is broken.

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 !
