Southern Plantation Gardens

penny_savApril 6, 2009

Saturday I drove up to Charleston SC to tour Magnolia Plantation Gardens.

Just a few shots of a southern spring, especially for you folks up north who might be shoveling some of that disgusting white stuff! So sorry.

Wonderful photos Penny... I spent a day at Callaway Gardens and a day in the Piedmont Park/Buckhead area in Atlanta this past weekend for a similarly southern spring weekend. Can't beat it.

mmmm, charleston...one of my favorite places.

I fell in love with it last summer when I went. We only spent one night there, so I didnt get to make it to that particular place, but its truly beautiful.

Your shots are inspiring me to take vacation that I dont have the time or money for! haha

Summerwine, I'm glad you like the shady path, I was thinking I needed to tweak the exposure a bit? It looks dark to me.
The statue is a replica of the Bird Girl Statue that appeared on the cover of Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil. I've never seen the original, she sits in a museum now, due to the volume of visitors tramping thru the graveyard looking for her! I'd rather see one I'm a garden, instead of one in a stuffy museum.

and i was gonna ask if you could get a photo of that midnight bird girl, o dwell (i'd rather see her in a garden too)

if you can lighten the shadows in a photoedit program without overexposing the brighter areas, i say go ahead, otherwise i wouldn't change a thing because what caught my eye about this one was the perspective of the path, and of looking up thru the distant branches to that wonderful, bright chartreuse

very nice pic, if a little color correction is done on the pics, it will look even better
