Cotton fields of South Carolina

Sep 19 2009 Published by under Personal, Travel

The weather was iffy this morning, but I went out to the drop zone anyway to see if the weather would be good enough to make a skydive.  It turns out it was; however, none of my usual jump friends apparently felt the same way, so I didn't make a jump!

On the way back, though, I pass through farm country.  The cotton is now in full bloom and pretty much ready to be harvested.  I snapped a few pictures with the new iPhone and stitched together a couple of panoramas, which I post below.

I climbed onto the top of my car for this shot, to get some perspective.

I really think that a cotton field in bloom is quite a sight, almost like winter in September.
