After the storm
Charleston, South Carolina is one of the oldest English colonies in the New World with a rich and colorful history. Charleston has played an important role over the last 3 centuries as a vital location for the import and export of all manner of goods, including the trade of human slaves. The harbor at Charleston is one of the finest in the world. Today, many of the fine old buildings still remain in the French quarter. Charleston is a favorite location of many Plein Air painters for the rich culture on the coast, the abundant wildlife, fantastic colors along the shoreline and tidal marshes.
We arrived in Charleston during the tail end of an ocean storm. I really like the picture above from after the storm. It reminds me of old times and raw history and leaves me with a real emotion for life.
A wonderful sunrise made the harbor become a mystical place.
An amazing day in such a cool place!
