Last post of 2010, first Christmas Snow EVER

South Carolina Christmas Snow, 2010

Well, it is almost 2011. Time seems to go by faster as I get older.

Last weekend we had snow on Christmas Day! In South Carolina! That is the first time I've seen snow on Christmas. There had been a couple of snow storms within a few days of Christmas, but none that i remember actually being on Christmas Day.

The snow started late in the afternoon, so it wasn't really a "White Christmas". We seemed to have gotten about two inches total which really is not much as we do get the occasional six+ inches. However, the weather stayed cold for a few days afterwards letting the snow linger longer than normal.

Anyway, I hope everyone's holidays have been joyful.

Happy New Year.

Prestwood Sunrise

Prestwood Sunset

Here is a photograph of a sunset over Lake Prestwood during my visit to Hartsville. I wish there had been some nice clouds in the sky. The next evening had a beautiful sky, but I was driving back home by that time.

Keep shooting.

Still around

World War I Memorial Panel

There hasn't been very much of interest happening recently. I did visit my folks over the the Thanksgiving weekend. Hartsville had dedicated a new veterans' memorial in the town. There is a bronze panel sculpture for four of the major wars the US fought in during the 20th century (WWI, WWII, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf). This photograph is part of the World War I panel. We were there late in the afternoon and the sun was coming in from a low angle giving nice definition to this particular panel.

Keep shooting.
