South Carolina is considered the Lowcountry, and for good reason. It's incredibly flat here, which gives way to large expansive skies that I'm trying to capture. I typically work with morning or evening shots, but wanted to capture the marshes just after a storm blew through with all of the cumulus clouds overhead. 

This piece is on a cradled wood panel with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
