White Hot

The slightly over-exposed photo makes that sand look and feel mighty hot. Stunning detail from not only one but two 10x8 glass plates - the ultimate image quality.

The Pavilion

At one time the Isle of Palms Ferris wheel was reported to be the biggest in the world. It inspired a poem that was published in the New York Herald Tribune, that ended with:

Embark to an Arcadian past again
And share the wonder of a miracle;
A giant wheel upon a sandy plain.

Across the bay St. Michael’s tower gleams.
Majestic oaks await no oracle—
No intervals of change attack my dreams.

Sand or snow

Looks almost like Duluth in January.
