Landing Angels Type 3:2


Spending time exploring the coast of South Carolina was time well spent.  Old plantation locations settled in among aging, mossy trees and green country roads naturally spark curiosity and adventure.  While hanging around the Charleston area, I found so many featured spots of interest that are highly under reported.  And photographically, it’s a wonderful place to play.

Among other places on my list to visit, the Angel Oak tree was on the top.  This little private park can come with lots of protection and lots of people visiting.  So to photograph it, you have to be patient.  Angel Oak is said to be one of the oldest living oak trees east of the Mississippi River. It stands 65 feet (20m or 6 stories) tall, is 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and an area of 17,000 square feet is shaded by its looming reach. The largest branch reaches 187 feet.  It’s age is estimated to be close to 400 years old!
