I am excited and pleased to present participant images from my Charleston Low Country Workshop. Remember to click on their links to see more of their work! Here is Charleston (Low Country) Through Their Eyes.
“I Loved this particular spot for it’s serenity, and, it represented what I had always thought of as what “the South” was like. The trees of South Carolina captured my heart!”
“The city of Charleston is built on layers of contradictory growth – the fringed wagons, pulled by Percherons, carrying visitors with their ever-present iphones; the gentility of a patina-d iron gate reflected in the luster of a black jaguar; the moss-draped plots of the Magnolia Cemetery where, if you turn just right, you can see the stunning ultra-modern wires of the Ravenel Bridge…Here are more layers, found in the sunrise at Folly Beach. Somehow, it all works.”
“Egret mating ritual in the Magnolia Gardens in Charleston. What fantastic opportunities to view beautiful birds and alligators, to look with awe at ancient trees, and to sample the joys of Southern cooking and Southern hospitality. Charleston is a city not to be missed!”
“Azaleas may be the best known plant of the Low Country, but I am fascinated by the persistence of Spanish moss. It’s understated grace thrives in places azaleas wouldn’t.”
“Loved this iconic view of the Oak Alley at Tomotley Plantation. I wanted something in the foreground, but since there was nothing I decided to get very low and use the grass as an anchor. Originally visioned this as a B&W (which is very much out of my box), but decided I liked the beautiful color version better. Which do you prefer? Taken with my Fuji X-T1, 55-200 lens at f20”
“This is one of the supports of the Ravenel Bridge. Most interesting, especially considering the wind at the top was probably 40+ mph! Couldn’t use tripods, and balance looking up was difficult. I lamented the lack of clouds, but seeing the final result believe blank blue was much better. Was a fun as well as challenging location. Fuji X-T2, 18-55 lens @ f9, 1/500 sec.”
“It’s difficult to pick one favorite image from a place like Charleston that has so many creative photo opportunities In the end, I chose an image that highlights the symmetry of reflections and the diversity of color and texture.”
“I fell in love with the Spanish Moss that was everywhere in Charleston. I loved the way the sun would shine through the moss, as it waved gently in the breeze. John asked me why I chose this view, of the arch of tree limbs, at Tomotley Plantation. I loved the way the large branches on the right and the left framed the low arched branches below. Also, the way the sunshine lit up the leaves on that first arched branch, and made the Spanish Moss glow, made me move over a bit to the right to take this shot.”
It was wonderful looking at these images….beautiful scenery.
Beautiful work done by all. I’m now inspired to work on my images. Thanks for sharing.
Their talent deserves to be rewarded by sharing!
