This is a somewhat artsy presentation of the Ravenel Bridge through a monument at Magnolia Cemetery.
Nature at her finest.
Lines going every which way occupy this space under an arbor.

Images with reflections are some of my favorites to capture. In this case I couldn’t get the bird and his reflection in the image as he was too high up in the tree. So just the reflection will have to do.
This was taken at the end of February before the trees started to leaf out.
The front window of this bridal shop on Church Street in Charleston is always filled with luxurious wedding wear, but is difficult to photograph. Glare, reflections of cars parked across the street, and folks passing by are detractors.
Fortunately for those wanting a more intimate peek of it’s offerings (yes, me!) the shop has taken marketing advantage of its windows on the side street.
The gowns are elegant even on a headless, limbless dress form.
An entire rack of taffeta, lace and sparkle draws my eye and the bridal march is playing in my head.
This Anhinga was performing his drying ritual fairly close to the dike. Hoping he wouldn’t fly I took this from the car, which limited my angle. This was the shadowy end of the pond and I didn’t capture much color, but of course I liked the reflection.
After taking too many Roseate Spoonbill in flight images with plain blue backgrounds, I tried a monochrome treatment for something a little different. I like the outline of the bird from beak to toenails but miss the pink.
There was just enough breeze to crinkle the resting Roseate Spoonbills’ reflections after their first morning feeding.
The seeds are just starting to form in the outer edges of this sunflower head, while the individual disk florets in the center are still developing.
Now that nesting season is over it is unusual to see Great Blue Herons perched high in a tree. This one found the perfect pine branch to have a look around the pond.
