Explore South Oak, 400 South and more!

This is the Angel Oak Tree, in Charlston, an enormous live oak tree named after it's previous owners Martha and Justin Angel. The tree is thought to be over 1500 years old. Much like the Grand Canyon, photos can't really convey the size of this enormous tree. A person standing in front of the tree would stand about halfway up the trunk. The Angel Oak is 65 feet tall and over 25 feet around the trunk...

English Oak Bonsai Tree (Quercus Robur). A literati style (loose, free-flowing) tree which was probably collected from the wild and then trained as a bonsai.

Camera: Nikon D300 Lens: Nikon 18-200MM F3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR DX I use my photos as inspiration for my paintings which can be seen at:

300 Year old Oak Trees, Oak Alley Plantation, Louisiana. New Orleans was one of my most favorite places I've gone. The tour of this mansion and plantation was amazing, I didn't know it at the time, but it has a real reputation for being haunted.
