This is the Angel Oak in Charleston (John's Island) - for a great overview of the history of the Angel Oak click here.

Some basic facts...

The road into the Angel Oak - I love this drive in - it is like being transported in time...
This is your first look at it...
It is like Mother Nature is the ultimate artist! 
This should provide some perspective on the size of the tree...

The lines are incredible...

  1. Wonder why they call it the Angel Oak??? My imagination isn't seeing an angel.

    I find branches like that that swoop down and grow into and back out of the ground fascinating.

  2. Keetha - the family that owned the plantation was named Angel.

  4. I like the way you showed the depth and perception. This tree reminds me of a few in Audubon Park In New Orleans.

  7. Such beautiful pictures. Love looking at old trees. Some time back I posted a photo of the oldest eucalyptus tree near where we live. It was planted in 1859. They give you such a sense of stability, don't they? I really enjoyed your photos. (And have I told you your blog background is great? It is!)

    Happy 2012!
