Seafoam Sunrise

A sunrise image taken at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park in Palm Coast, FL. This is on the ocean side of the park.


The rock out-cropping in this image is composed of coquina rock, which is a combination of sea shells and sand bonded together with calcite. This rock has been used for construction in the area for centuries.


Washington Oaks Gardens State Park is located south of St. Augustine in the city of Palm Coast. The property was once owned by a distant relative of George Washington. The gardens, located between the coast and the Mantanzas River, were established by Louise and Owen Young.


The weather was very windy and the ocean turbulent on this particular morning. Seamfoam was lining the beach and blowing around everywhere. There wasn't any getting low and shooting wide-angle unless you wanted your equipment under water every few minutes, so I stood back on the beach and shot with a longer focal length.


Please view on BLACK.
