SC Picture of the Month

Sunrise casts a soft summer glow over Myrtle Island on the May River in Bluffton. South Carolina's coast has experienced unusually high tides in the past week. Called astronomical tides, they are caused by the gravitational forces of the earth, moon, and sun. The tides have provided great views as well as exceptional swimming and boating. Unfortunately, they have also caused a fair degree of flooding!

May River

As everyone in South Carolina knows, our state has been hit by a sweltering heat wave recently. Temperatures have reached the high 90s, and the heat index has been well over 100 degrees. We hope that this serene morning marsh view allows you to cool off – at least mentally!

Special thanks to Lamar Nix for allowing us to share his photo with you. Lamar lives in Beaufort County, where he takes to Lowcountry swamps and shores with camera in tow. Lucky for us, he's a frequent contributor to the South Carolina Picture Project. Be sure to set aside a few minutes to enjoy more of Lamar's one-of-a-kind shots.

Calling All Photographers & Artists! Even if it weren't for the heat, we'd know it must be summertime in South Carolina. All our readers have gone on vacation and forgotten to send us pictures! SCIway is looking for great scenes from around our beautiful state. Over 70,000 different people view our gallery every month. Submitting a picture is a great way to bring attention to you or your town. Please send us your pictures and help us celebrate South Carolina's history, culture, and beauty.
