Spanish Moss, Charleston, South Carolina

One of my main photographic goals for my trip to Charleston was to photograph the iconic Spanish moss. These trees were so heavily laden with moss I couldn’t help thinking of the cobweb-coated trees from The Hobbit, but thankfully there were no giant spiders lurking in the shadows.

(And for your fun trivia fact of the day, it turns out Spanish moss isn’t actually a moss, but  belongs to the same family of plants as pineapples (bromeliads).  Guess it goes to show appearances can be deceiving…)
