Winter Solstice, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA
Winter began early the morning of the 22nd. Days are getting longer - Summer is on the way!
Bush palmetto in the 605-acre Sea Pines Forest Preserve.
Hard packed flat beach sand at low tide makes for smooth pedaling.
Spanish moss weeps from the trees in the Sea Pines Forest Preserve. Spanish moss is not a parasite but rather an epiphyte that draws its nourishment from air and rain.
Patterns in pelican feathers at the Sea Pines South Beach Marina.
If you need it to seem more like winter, pretend the sand is snow and the water is ice.
