Day trips around Coastal SC
 
Thought maybe I'd thread together a few rides I have planned...nothing huge, really. Just local jaunts to out of the way places that don't have traffic. Shall we begin?


Me: "Hey Boss. Mind if I bail a little early?"
Boss: "Nope."
Me: "Later!"

So I geared up, and endeavored to make it to a new favorite solitary place on Edisto Island, about 50 miles away in time to catch the sunset. Well, I didn't get there as early as I wanted, but still got a few good ones...

^^This gnarly old tree is in a cluster of three in the middle of the salt marsh...I think the Sepia tone treatment makes it look very cool.^^

These last two shots are from any area lake about 70 miles away...I took them a couple days prior. Really liked how the sunlight was 'coloring' the water as it broke against the shore. the last shot is interesting to me...looks almost like a picture of cooled magma from a lava flow or something...

More to come...hope you all enjoy. :D

Top one is the bridge on Bear Island Wildlife Preserve, right? Other two are Botany Bay??

2nd to the end looks like the beach on Bull Island.

Cool thread. My dad is working in Charleston, and I've been meaning to take a weekend trip to see him. May have to find some of the places when I do.

Simply amazing.

My momma is from coastal carolina, and i remember travelling through the area as a kid. My imagination would picture all kinds of creatures in the moss covered trees.

I must get down there with the KLR next year.

Ha. I recognized the remnants of the old bridege's pilings along the new Bear Island bridge. The Cormarants love perching on those...

As for your last pic...gonna take a stab and say ACE Basin Wildlife preserve, up near the plantation house...

ALSO:

Don't be shy...If you have some good pics of the Carolina Coast, or any of the really cool outta the way places in the Low Country, POST 'EM UP!! :thumb

Some sunsets, and sunrise (from this a.m)....all in Pimlico, SC, along the Cooper River.

And sunrise along the Cooper River, this a.m. as I headed to work. I am housesitting for a friend who lives in Pimlico, and the views along the river are sweet!
