These red cedars line the edge of the marsh at Lazaretto Creek, Fort Pulaski.

I’m fascinated by their tenacity and resilience.

They grow and thrive at the edge of the marshes and shore, turning and bending with the winds and storms.

Forms and shapes are a record of their surviving life’s challenges.

We can do the same. Stay resilient, my friends!

A cold afternoon at the Savannah Wildlife Refuge but with brilliant blue skies. This little patch of cedar, dog fennel and cassina berry shrub is a small high spot, a mini island.

Golden light, speeding clouds, and a fresh breeze. A cloud passing over threw the whole right hand sided of the tree line into deep blue shadow where it have been lavender grey just a few moments before.

The edge of the marsh across the Wilmington River from Bonaventure Cemetery.

A bitter cold day but with the sun streaming out over the marshes.

Red cedar trees on the back dunes on Tybee Island’s south end beach.

Cedars are some of the most resilient trees out there. The wind off the ocean sculpts and shapes them into dancing forms that all point inland.
