“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
― Rabindranath Tagore

Several weeks ago, when my great friends, Amy, Tony, and I spent the weekend photographing in the Charleston area, we were faced most of the weekend with gray, storm threatening skies.

There was one evening, however, that we were able to experience  a bit of color during sunset.

I had seen images that were taken at Lake Moultrie, located in Berkeley County, SC, but had never been there prior to that evening.

I loved the images I had seen of the trees standing firm in the water.

Little Tree, Big Sky

When we first arrived, it was this tree that kept drawing my attention.

As the sun began to make its way to the horizon, we all scrambled to find the perfect place to photograph the scene.

Setting Up for the Shot

Here is my friend, Amy, setting up to capture her interpretation of the scene.  She was kind enough to wear a lovely blue that worked with the colors of the sky.

During my time photographing at the lake, I tried many different compositions.  I tried photographing the different trees separately and in different groups.

Pastel Skies

It was a special evening witnessing this gorgeous, pastel sunset.  I was thrilled to be there sharing the beauty with my friends.

This is definitely a location I hope to return to experience different light in order to see what else I might be able to capture.

    These are remarkable. You keep getting better and better. Or should I say greater and greater.
