The Angel Oak Tree is located on Johns Island just outside of Charleston, SC. According to the website dedicated to this magnificent southern live oak, it is about 400-500 years old, stands nearly 70 feet tall, has a circumference of 28 feet and shades an area over 17,000 square feet.
Knowing that this is one of the oldest living things in America, I wanted to produce an image with a vintage feel. I can only imagine the things it has seen and the stories it would tell. It has stood fast through countless historic events such as the American Revolution and Civil War, and weathered many storms including the Category 5 Hurricane Hugo, which ravaged the Charleston area in 1989.
