Boneyard

There are a few places I like to photograph simply because they are so intriguing.

One such place I call the Boneyard. It’s a small beach area in Walton County Florida, on the leeward side of Choctawhatchee Bay. Its actual name is Bay Flats.

Along this stretch of beach, sun-bleached and water-smoothed tree trunks lay at odd angles, literally pulled out of the ground. Or else, their roots, like fingers dug into the sand, refuse to yield to the wind and waves.

Left where they landed after a storm, the elements have worked on them until they all resemble the wasted bones of some great extinct beast. What nature didn’t transform, fire has.







(Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens and/or a Nikon CoolPix S205)

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. These pictures are beautiful. Every time I see your pics from the gorgeous natural areas in your own backyard I get a little jealous about your photo opps, and I have to remind myself that just because I’m in a metropolitan area it doesn’t mean that I don’t have opps: they’re just different!

  3. So fun. I love these pictures and what a neat place to just wander. It always amazes me how beautiful so many things can be if we just let them be the way they are meant to be.
