Green Clam Illusion - June 2020
While taking other images of the Savannah River, I was struck by this optical illusion created by the reflection of an open grassy area on the opposite bank. Viewed from the perspective of Image One, the grassy area with its reflection looks very much like a giant fuzzy green clam.
The illusion is lost when viewing the grassy area from directly across the river as in Image Two. This open area is a natural gas or oil pipeline… actually three of them that come together to cross the river at this point.
The pipelines are buried under the river and a protective layer of stone and gravel is mounded up over them. It would be tempting to wade across the river above the pipelines, but a warning sign at the crossing points out that the level of the water is subject to sudden change should they open or close gates on the dam. Image Three is the warning sign. There is no way that you would not hear the “horn.” I was on the walkway on top the dam when the siren went off. It is LOUD!

Not exactly what I was fishing for. He was released safely.
Wanted to share this mural done in my home town of Rock Hill, SC (about 25 minutes away from Charlotte, NC).

Savannah River Below Lake Hartwell Dam - June 2020
There is a fishing pier located along the riverbank beneath Lake Hartwell Dam. Evidently, the turbulence of the water coming through the turbines creates a good habitat for fish. It also creates an interesting pattern on the surface of the water, which combined with the railing of the pier, the trees on the opposite bank, and the Route 29 bridge create a very interesting image.
The second image shows the fishing pier as you approach the dam.
