Rare and Elusive

On a moody and mysterious morning,
I happened upon the rare and elusive
 yodeling pelican singing its haunting
 song into a thick veil of mist.

Ticket Brochure Cover Image, © Doug Hickok



I'm very excited to announce one of my images
 has been selected for the cover of the newest 
Spoleto Festive USA ticket brochure.
  
The Spoleto Festival in Charleston is America's
 premier performing arts festival.
If you're curious about the cover, it's a
palmetto frond, from South Carolina's state tree.

Snowfall







West Ashley Park, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok



Yesterday Charleston had an historic snowfall.
Many roads and bridges were closed due to ice
 and heavy snow. So I took a walk in a park,
with my camera of course.
Our local park is suburban, but quite wild.

Mid-day shadows fill valleys carved by millions of years
 of water erosion. Rivers and rain showers, snow and ice...
all combined to wash away the stone.
