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)

All the pictures are great, but, I liked the Stonehedge one the best 🙂
One of these days, I’m going to have to get back to Florida, and really get some pictures! You make me realize, each week, more and more, how much I miss that state!!
