Lens Artists Photo Challenge #236 – East meets West or North meets South

Amy’s challenge is to explore differences between locations in the East and West or North and South using culture, architecture, plants, or landscape. I’m going to take a look at the differences between North Georgia and South Georgia landscapes. The opening image is springtime in Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah.

North Georgia

North Georgia has mountains, waterfalls, Tallulah Gorge, and the highest point in Georgia.

South Georgia

South Georgia is flat and has the Okefenokee Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, barrier islands, beaches, salt marsh, farmland, pecan groves, and historic Savannah.

  1. Once again Beth I am amazed at the similarities between your world and mine. I thought perhaps you’d visited our Magnolia Gardens before I read your text with the first image.The same is true for the marsh shot at the end – also gorgeous! A marvelous post – I suppose I shall have to head to northern SC one of these days to be able to compare against your beautiful mountains!

    1. Thanks Tina. I love Savannah in the spring when the dogwoods and azaleas are blooming. Bonaventure Cemetery is beautiful then. One year we spent a few days in South Carolina’s Upcountry in Mountain Rest. One day we took a drive from there that took us into North Carolina and Georgia. It’s a pretty area.

  2. Quite a diversity in your landscape, Beth. The salt marsh, the falls, the driftwood on the beach and the Cemetery. Wow what a beautiful place to be laid to rest. A beautiful collection, a beautiful state.
