Lake Jocassee

I was a bit skeptical going to this place because while the pictures I have seen looked interesting, they made the lake look somewhat distant. Alas, my picture was no different as I chose a very wide FOV via a several frame panorama. However, the sheer size of this lake is unbelievable. As you come over the top of the hill it dominates your view. While it looks distant here, it almost appears to swallow you when you see it in person. A bonus is that it is somewhat isolated so there is a good chance you may have the place to yourself.

Location: Jumping off Overlook at Lake Jocassee, SC
