Charleston Photo of the Day

Recommended Posts


I'm new to UP, but anyways, I have several wonderful pix of Charleston, stored on my computer, but how do you post them here? Just wondering.

Also, does Charleston ever have an Air Show? I know when growing up in Cleveland, OH before moving here to SC, every Labor Day Weekend, Cleveland had a huge air show at the Lakefront. Usually had the Blue Angels, or some other big USAF Group. I've always loved watching US War Planes and what not performing manuevers overhead. Anyways, if they did, I'm sure it would look sweet out over the Harbor.

Charleston does have an airshow, I forgot what time of year it ussually is though. If you want to post pictures, one of the most convenient sites is photobucket.com , thats what I ussually use.

^^ That's one of my favorite houses in Charleston. Whoever remodeled that place did a heck of a job. I bet it didn't even look that good when it was brand-new.

Okay sports fans, check out this photo of our beloved "Atlantic Silver Gate Bridge".

This is a beautiful picture of the new bridge. Not to go overboard but I'm reminded of two celestial, gossamer-like pryamids suspended over water.

Awesome pic. He must of had an excellent camera with very good zoom capabalities, because there is no way he would of been that close to the military plane when that pic was taken. If he was, he would of been in a big plane accident.

There is a good chance he was in another C-17 like this plane is here if not atlease a KC-135 Tanker and they get with a new dozen feet from each other while doing mid-air refueling these guys know how to get close and not screw up so he doesn;t really need a good zoom I am sure a standard micro would do.

Is that the official name? who knew? :ph34r:

Well, not really. ;) That is a nickname for the bridge that's been used every now and then. Actually, I think it was either Spartan, MikesLogic, or krazeeboi that first coined the term here on UP.

This is from a wonderful screwup we had on the ICW just north of Isle of Palms late at night heading up to Capers Island for the weekend. It is in a photo competition in that will be shown in the April edition of Trailer Boats.

Thanks guys/gals Yeah we got stuck on the sand bar heading back to the island after picking up a friend and were there all night until Sea Tow came and helped out. The was a very beautiful cold and tiring sun rise. I live in Greenville, SC and love the mountains around here but get down to Charleston any chance I can get. I consider it my second home.

Know what you mean. The mountains of the Upstate and the charm of Greenville are what attracted me to SC, but after moving here a few years back, I've simply fallen in love with the Lowcountry and the entire coast.....Pawleys Island, Georgetown, Bluffton, Hilton Head, Beaufort, Mt. Pleasant, Kiawah Island, Daufuskie Island and of course, Charleston. SC really has some beautiful areas that go head to head with any state. :thumbsup:
