Sending out Peace and Love to all the people and the earth. and the last two lines of Walt Whitman’s poem, America, is engraved:
Centre of equal daughters, equal sons,
All, all alike endear’d, grown, ungrown, young or old,
Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich,
Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love,
A grand, sane, towering, seated Mother,
Chair’d in the adamant of Time.

A photography of Angel Oak Tree in infrared on St Johns Island, South Carolina.
The fairy-talesque Angel Oak tree in Charleston, SC, is thought to be one of the oldest living organisms east of the Mississippi River.
Angel Oak is allegedly the oldest tree and is located east of the Rockies. The tree is estimated to be more than 1500 years old. It is simply known as The Tree in some circles. It stands in a wooded area in John’s Island just outside Charleston in South Carolina. Angel Oak is a live oak which also happens to be the state’s most imposing work of nature.
With a height of more than 65 feet, Angel Oaks has shaded the area for more than 1,500 years. Historical records trace the ownership of the tree and the land on which it stands to 1717 when it was given to Abraham Waight as part of a land grant. In addition, Mr. Waight was an extremely wealthy man who also owned several plantations. The tree four stayed in that family four generations. The land was also used as part of a marriage settlement between Martha W.T. Angel and Justus Angel. Today, Angel Oak serves as the focal point of a public park in South Carolina. In the modern day, Angel oak is owned by the City of Charleston and it costs nothing to marvel at the tree in John’s Island.

This is a photograph from a short hike in Mount Laurel, the hike to the cell called me to hike to the tower, the woods look so beautiful like a piece of fine art. I found some other interesting photos along the way which I am sharing.
Thanks for the visit and please look at Pixels.com for some prints of mine that are available.

I have had many friends recommend this hike over the years but haven’t had the chance to get there. I finally did this October and they were right! Thanks to a tip by a great photographer Frank Garcia, the trip was a piece of cake. It was beautiful with all the falls. The hike was intense, huge incline, very strenuous but the whole hike was great. I wanted to keep going but I was running out of sun light and had no headlamp so, I will go back another day and camp out.
I did four of falls so I missed the rest of the falls, but there is always tomorrow.
It was totally worth the hike and the photographic views. I went on late afternoon so I had some great light.
Please leave comments.

Good morning sun shine, the day started at 4:00 am to get from my house to Friendship New Jersey. It took a good 45 minute run to get to the finally location which was my second choice. I had Shane’s Branch on my mine, but hiking through water in the dark did not appeal to me.
I arrived at ruins of the abandoned town of Friendship which has a big open vista which a great location to capture a sunrise. The air was clean and free from bugs which can be a distraction. The blue hour was right on time as you can see in my blue hour photograph. I really felt connected to the place and proud of self as I had not got up so early in resent times.
