Sunset on Lake Murray, SC

IMG_1637-0.JPG

South Carolina has all kinds of water – streams, rivers, ponds, waterfalls, the Atlantic Ocean, and lakes. This photo, taken with my iPhone 5s is of one of my favorites, Lake Murray.

Located near the center of the State, it is a man made lake created to provide electricity for much of the surrounding area. There are still buildings, churches, and homes gradually decaying under the water. The water is held back by one of the longest earthen dams in the country (recently reinforced for earthquake safety)

Fortunately, I get to drive across it most evenings and enjoy lovely sunsets. This photo is taken from the east side of the dam. Warm fall evenings entice folks to take their boats out, fish off the docks, picnic, and stroll or jog across the dam.
