Majestic Drive

The Charleston Charm photo tour began today, and what a spectacular place this is. Ancient live oak trees draped with Spanish moss line country roads leading to the area's history.

It was tempting to photograph this road symmetrically, but moving off to the side creates a better flow and a feeling of depth. On this partly sunny day, the light was constantly changing as clouds came and went.

When photographing from a road, safety is paramount. Always watch for cars. It is easy to get involved in what you are photographing and not hear approaching traffic. Stay off to the side as much as possible.

Later in the week you will see more images of Charleston. Stay tuned.

Shutter Speed 1/200 sec.  Aperture f/6.3.  ISO 800.  Lens: Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS, set at 70mm.  Camera: Canon 5D Mark III.  Handheld.
