Morning fog along Waccamaw River

Waccamaw River, SC, USA

The blackwater rivers along the coast of South Carolina were once one of the most productive regions for growing rice, the Carolina Gold variety. These rivers are freshwater, but tidal in nature due to their proximity to the ocean. This allowed the impoundments to be filled with water as the tides rose, their water levels controlled with trunk locks. Now, most are slowly reverting back to their natural states.
