The Statue on top of my church on Sullivan's Island, SC. This statue can be seen from sea, it is a landmark and a guide for ships arriving at the Charleston Harbor. This is the first photo I took as I saw the birds on the statue, particularly the bird on Mary's hands. I found it a compeling sight and photographed it from several angles. I always take a photo immediately when I see a scene, for fear that it will change immediately. This is, as I said, the first photo. It shows what I first saw. This statue is on top of a steeple.
This is a blk and white version from a different angle and taken with my "birding" lens, the 400mm.
