at an alluvial fan stream in the Rockies.

On a warm summer day in Maine, dense fog cloaks the coastline,
dramatically dropping air temperature into the cool 50's.
The West Quoddy Head Lighthouse sounds its deep fog horn,
penetrating the mist with a warning to approaching ships.

Surviving burnings by two invading armies, in two distant wars,
the remains of colonial era Sheldon Church are a reminder of the Lowcountry's turbulent history.
Ironically, its quiet setting in the countryside makes it a perfect place for a peaceful stroll.

Good news continues for Charleston tourism. Travel and Leisure Magazine selected Charleston as the No. 1 city in North America for visiting. This recognition is in addition to Conde Nast's vote for top travel destination
in the world last year.
We have a long holiday weekend,
so why not enjoy some of our city's many charms?
By the way, Charleston rocks...
as in, there are lots of cobblestone streets to see!

Natural textures of wood and stone abound in the village of Old Salem. Visitors step back in time to glimpse a life of simplicity and intimacy with the earth.

I have a brief announcement. Regretfully, I am stepping back from the social part of blogging for awhile. I need to refocus time and energy on our photography business. In the meantime, because I have a trove of photos which I would like to share with you, I still plan on taking a few moments each day to make a post.
I hope you will continue to stop in for a quick visit.
