I’m alive! I’m sure some of you (perhaps somebody? anybody??) were wondering where I’d gone to and what had happened to me. Plain and simple, I got busy. For much of the summer, I was working two jobs, barely getting a day off, and unfortunately neither of those jobs related to my own photography! Then the season of weddings came. The hubs and I have been to places like Minnesota and Virginia, as well as just 2 hours up the road to Pawleys Island for these weddings. Needless to say, we’re happy to be home for awhile!
What this all boils down to is this: I’m back in the saddle again, and ready to rock! 🙂
Autumn in Charleston is a bit different than what most of the country experiences. For one, the chilly, crisp air doesn’t typically arrive until October or November while most folks start feeling it in September. Secondly, our raking season typically involves more pine needles than it does actual leaves. However, South Carolina does have some pretty spectacular places to see autumn’s true colors.
Table Rock State Park is an excellent area to see vibrant foliage. It’s less than a 4-hour drive from Charleston, and features several wonderful hiking trails. I had the opportunity to set up camp (literally!) in Table Rock during Veteran’s Day weekend 2007. We spent our 3 days hiking, making camp fires, and just soaking up the tranquility that camping allows. The following images are a few favorites from that trip. I hope that you enjoy them, and as always, feedback is appreciated! 🙂
