Morning Sunrise, Jekyll Island, GA

I attended my 45th high school reunion on Jekyll Island in the fall of 2012 and thankfully one of my classmates captured this inspiring scene one morning.

Old wind blown oak trees on Jekyll and on the coast of Georgia are always accompanied by other trees around them and lean in mass to the prevailing winds over time. This poor tree was stripped of its friends when the dunes were leveled for a run down motel now on the site. It has become a sad reminder of man's lack of appreciation for and knowledge of the ecosystems of the coastal region.
