The tall loblolly pines in the picnic area at Congaree National Park cast long patterns of shadows across a deep carpet of pine needles. I painted this same spot back in January when the only things in the forest with leaves were the pines and hollies. It’s as if someone dropped a curtain on the distant trees.
