Photo pick of the week: Winged Wonders

We tip our hats to Roxanne Wells of Irmo this week for her photo, taken in Cayce, of a great blue heron enjoying a rain shower.

What we liked about her shot: it’s dynamic, yet it has an old-world painterly look due in part to the lovely muted colors and the rain.

We had a hard time choosing from the 52 entries we received, but we enjoyed each of them.

Thanks to all who submitted.

Last week, Charleston was ranked by Travel & Leisure magazine readers as the No. 1 best city in the world. So we thought you might have photos that show what we’re made of.

We invite you to share any photo that shows what makes the Charleston area extra-special, from people to the arts to special places or scenes. Anything that reflects a Lowcountry life worth living.

Send just one (1) photograph to by noon on Thursday, Jan. 14. 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.

- The top pick each week will be featured in the Sunday Arts & Culture section and selected picks will appear on The Post and Courier Facebook page.
