Dead Tree Beach / Beer Can Island

Dead tree beach, beer can island, or simply tree beach--many names for a beach that's being swept away. 

It won't always be here and I'm lucky to have spent summers here.

It's not really such a bad spot though. Even if I almost submerged my camera attempting to get some of these shots.

For all the time that I've lived in Sarasota, I never took enough photos here, but I also never appreciated the photographic potential of this beach until I realized how green the seaweed was. Everyone takes photos here--you can't find a sunset without a family portrait session, a golden hour without an engagement shoot. So taking photos here feels a little repetitive. I know a lot of (okay, a few) Sarasota photographers who actively dislike shooting here.

It's a part of Florida that I love, and I'm going to miss it.
