Next week's photo assignment: Spring in the Lowcountry

By Bruce Halla: Well, we certainly do have lovely parks, and my wife and I take a ton of pictures. It never gets old! My entry was taken at Cypress Gardens on a typical gorgeous Spring day

If there was ever any doubt that the Lowcountry is a relaxing place, this week's parks photos prove otherwise.

It's to the Lowcountry's credit that few of the 31 photos were of the same place. Beauty is everywhere here.

Our editors especially liked Bruce Halla's photo from Cypress Gardens. Pick up a copy of Friday's People section to read the editors' comments.

We also like several others to possibly appear in My Charleston magazine. It won't publish until August so no final decision has been made yet.

That brings us to next week's assignment: Spring in the Lowcountry. Send us your best shot. If you would like your photo to be eligible in My Charleston magazine, please include a line in your email saying so.

Finally, we want to thank everyone for sending just one photo this week. It is much appreciated.

The rules:

- Send just one (1) photograph to by noon on Tuesday, April 15. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you send us multiple photos we will select one randomly.

- We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.
