This image was shot while passing behind the Middleton Plantation buildings. Before the US Civil War the houses were much larger. The main building of today was actually only a side structure to the big house, maybe the library.
This rice plantation was known to have one of the largest formal gardens in North America. Some of the formal gardens still exist and each spring colorful blossoms and visitors are everywhere.
Note; variations of this photograph have been published multiple times on this site. Each a bit different, this particular was taken as I learned new gear and for comparison to other images.
Photographed on a hill side sloping down towards an old rice field behind Middleton Place plantation. I’m not sure this does the scene justice, big Oaks and Moss are beautiful.
I was hesitant to call this a ‘hill’. We are in the Lowcountry and that means flat, sea level. That said one day I did search for high ground around Charleston. One of the highest is actually right here on this property. It’s a real honest to goodness hill.
