Roots at the beach

I never saw a discontented tree.  They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do.
They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!  ~John Muir

First of all I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Flamingo, but I Love flamingos anyway.

Second of all those tree roots are awesome - you could almost write a spooky story to go with them.

Awesome camera work!

I had the same thought as Snapper II, in the first photo it looks like the roots are in snow (even though I knew that wasn't the case).

Tree roots are fascinating, I could study them all day.
