Lake Moultrie Sunset

Lake Moultrie Sunset

Photographer: Robert Golub

Description: This photograph of cypress trees at sunset on Lake Moultrie was captured in 2018. I was in Charleston, South Carolina, to photograph the spring bloom, and a local colleague suggested the Lake Moultrie location, which is just north of the city. It was necessary to hike through some dense, swampy and bug-infested terrain to reach the site, but I think it was worth it.

Gear & Settings: Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm F/ 4.0 lens at 105mm, Gitzo traveler tripod. Exposure: 0.6 sec., ƒ/22, ISO 64.
