I always like photographing old footbridges like this. Their unique designs and scenic settings make interesting photos. This particular bridge connects The Inn at Middleton Place with the restaurant and main grounds. The walk takes you around the lake with a view of the Rice Mill, manicured lawns and mossy trees. Also, there could be an alligator encounter or two but, while you want to steer clear of them, they don’t like people and will move away from you!
Middleton Place is a plantation in Dorchester County, directly across the Ashley River from North Charleston and about 15 miles northwest of Charleston, in the U.S. state of South Carolina.
