Maybe this is a bad idea, but I'd like to have a place to share pics of our fair state. Threads in each city's subforum are wonderful, but this way we can truly appreciate the state's different areas by having them side by side in one thread...

If this is not needed then feel free to close it and I shall continue hunting through subforums... Otherwise, come on y'all and share what you've got! :)


I'll start off with a couple of shots of my hometown, Greenville:

Augusta Street Retail in the Historic West End:

Definitely one of my favorites as well. That was taken the day after we had a large rainstorm, so the falls were roaring with tons of beautiful muddy water. :shades:

Lake Jocassee is completely located in South Carolina. I assume you meant to say were standing in North Carolina when you shot this, right? Jocassee is definitely one of the most beautiful lakes in the nation. Devil's Fork State Park is a great place to begin enjoying the beauty and fun around that area. :shades:

And Whitewater Falls is practically on the NC/SC border, so definitely most of this shot is of SC, except maybe a few leaves in the foreground. :lol:
