Week 33 #33 Old Timer


My friend Roxana and I volunteered to organize the field trips this year for our photography club.  In April, we are taking a group to what the locals call “Beer Can Island” off the tip of Long Boat Key on the Gulf.  Its a fairly isolated spot only accessible by boat or by walking half mile along the shoreline.  This week we decided to go scope the area out, come up with a game plan for parking and determine where our group will set up.  After passing multiple piles of beer cans left by prior visitors I understood why the spot was named “Beer Can Island.”  The tide was up so we had to traverse through the trees, brush and dead stumps to reach our destination.  There we found beautiful sculptued pieces of driftwood and numerous trees that had washed ashore.  We had a fun morning capturing some great images and look forward to returning in April with our group to shoot the driftwood and hopefully catch some amazing sunset shots.

This old gnarly rooted tree really fascinated me. I can only imagine how many miles it traveled to end up on the island and thought it was perfect for the “Old Timer” theme.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  3. Great image but it does remind one of aging and perhaps getting gnarly.
