Swan Lake Iris Gardens

Will be posting images from a recent camera club field trip to Swan Lake Iris Gardens, Sumter, South Carolina. It is currently the only public park in the United States to have all eight species of swans—including Royal White Mutes, Black Necks, Coscorobas, Whoopers, Black Australians, Whistlers, Bewicks, and Trumpeters.

Rural Beauty of NC – Grandfather Mountain

Grandfather Mountain is an iconic peak 75 miles north of Asheville, North Carolina. The area is known for its incredible vistas and unmatched ecological diversity. The area is called Grandfather Mountain because of early pioneers who recognized “the face” of an old man on one of the cliffs. Can you see it?
