Rocks and Waves

Rocks and Waves

The waves roll in.. towards the beach.. on a cold Gulf Coast day.

The wind was strong, when I visited Fort Desoto Park in Pinellas County, Florida in December 2009.

Fort Desoto features a long gulf beach, as well as the historical fortifications from the Spanish American war in 1898.

The park is a great place to beachcomb, birdwatch, surf fish, or just ride your bicycle along the miles of bike trails.

The blowing sand and crisp weather kept the crowds away, and helped me to get some nice shots of "big waves" (at least for the Gulf) coming into the shore.
