Having grown up in the mountains of North Central West Virginia, I know what a hard winter is like. It’s not just the extra cold weather and the snow, it’s also all the grey, sunless days that can wreak havoc on your soul.
So while it can get a bit chilly here in the Lowcountry during the winter, the days are full of sun and vivid colors. I love the gold Marsh Grass, the brilliant Carolina blue skies, the absolutely spectacular subsets, and the flowers that even bloom in the winter months. I hope you enjoy this photo of a couple of those flowers (hydrangea and camellia) from my own yard. They brighten my chilly days.
“Winter Dip” photo by Lori Bee
So I’ve been a little slack of posting my photos on my actual blog. I have posted them here and there on my Facebook Business Page, but wanted to make sure I also documented them here.
This one was apparently so good that a local photographer tried to claim it as her own. LOL. I take it as a compliment, but I did indeed take this. She later relented, stating her software mistakenly flagged it as hers. Maybe I should start truly copyrighting them? Maybe even selling them? What do you think.
This was taken in late February at the Sea Pines Beach Club. I so enjoyed watching these carefree young ladies enjoying their “Winter Dip” in the Atlantic Ocean. Life on Hilton Head Island is so grand for our youth.
