In the foreground is what passes as driftwood on Jekyll island (GA) on appropriately enough Driftwood Beach. The driftwood here is actually the remains of ancient Southern live oaks that have given up the ghost to years of surf, wind and erosion. The leftover remnants of those ancient trees lay on the beach like giant twisted, magnificent sculptures that only Nature could carve.
Juxtaposed in the background, just to the center left you can see St. Simons Island Lighthouse standing proudly at its sentinel duty warning of danger ahead and guiding seafarers safely through St. Simons Sound. The light as been there in some form of fashion since 1810.
