I've lived here for over 18 years, and I have never seen the Angel Oak! It is only about 20 some miles away. I really should go see it.

You have some really nice images on your site. Both infrared and normal images.
Thanks!

Angel Oak is well worth the trip just to see the tree. My first trip there was in 2014. I visited there again in 2016, 2018 and 2020. I just had to cancel a 10 day reservation at James Island Country Park....drats!

I won't go again....at least for photography. If you go for photography, pick a cloudy day since you will be shooting up! LOL! They do NOT allow tripods and be prepared for large chains on the tree and large placards surrounding the tree. And they have created parking along the along the road. And the best compositions/views have cars behind the tree. Grumble, grumble....... Such a shame......

Go see the tree before it falls down. There was a famous tree in Maryland called the Wye Oak, which sprouted in the 1500s. Three limbs fell off in three separate occasions in the last half of the 20th century. Finally, in 2002 the tree fell over and died.
Angel Oak is still very healthy.....but the admonition to not put off viewing it is wise. Angel Oak is estimated to be 400-500 years old.
