Charles Towne Landing – Charleston, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Charleston County Photos | Charles Towne Landing
Charles Towne Landing honors the site of the first European settlement in the Carolinas, dating back to 1670. The park underwent a full renovation and reopened to the public in August 2006. One of its new highlights is beautiful Founders Hall – the only LEED-certified venue in Charleston.
Janelle Dawsey, who took the photo above, sends this description: “I visited the newly renovated Charles Towne Landing State Park and snapped this picture of an Indian Chief statue located near the entrance to the animal forest. As a kid, this statue was one of my favorite things at the park. I couldn’t help but notice how time had weathered its appearance – it has aged just as I have. I thought I could get a dramatic effect by snapping the picture from the ground at an upward angle. The sky was also beautiful that day and made the perfect backdrop for the photo.”
