A quiet morning at The Battery shows an old canon and a statue of General Moultre facing sunrise over the harbor. William Moultre's defense of the harbor at Sullivan's Island prevented the British from capturing Charleston in the early stages of the American Revolution.

Even with all the military reminders at The Battery, it is the perfect locale for a peaceful day's beginning.


  1. I like the angle in this picture!You got a beautiful composition. The color sky is just adorable!

  2. I'm intrigued by the cannon, Doug, which is so different from the ones we see all around us here in the Netherlands. I had never thought much before about the different styles...kinda like different makes of cars. HA!

  3. Interesting perspective Doug... Lovely capture!

  4. awesome sky, gorgeous angle and perspective !

  5. A delightful frame, Doug, and interesting explanatory notes. Love the tranquil mood you captured here.
