This is Lake Marion near Santee in South Carolina. We went fishing for catfish here at night, but this was just a tour on a pontoon boat during the day. The valley was flooded years ago and there are many treetops just below the surface to catch out the unwary boater.
I envisaged this in monochrome when I took it and I think it would work just as well in that format, but I chose to leave it like this because it is just what it looked like to the naked eye. It was very eerie.
These trees make ideal nesting places for osprey and they are two a penny around here. Some are no more than 7 or 8 feet above the water. Watch for these in the coming days!
