Here today, gone tomorrow

This serene beach scene at St Pete Beach Florida, taken at sunrise, was totally different 24 hours later after the passage of a severe band of thunderstorms, with onshore winds and resulting rough surf. In short, much of what you see here in the background was lost due to erosion. The reason for such severe loss of beach sand was due to the use of  hardened structures (sand bag groins) to supposedly reduce erosion. What I saw happen here is a perfect example in support of those (like me) who oppose such measures. But, what do I know. Only what I see. (Nikon D300, ISO 200, 48mm, f 5.6, 1/400 sec. Developed in Lightroom 2.6)
