Oak Tree Graveyard

Big Talbot Island State Park, Jacksonville, Florida

Oak Tree Graveyard

Big Talbot Island is one of the barrier islands north of Jacksonville, Florida. Overlooking Nassau Sound on the Atlantic Ocean is a bluff covered with oak trees. For thousands of years, storms have eroded the bluff, causing trees to fall onto the beach. This picture was taken on that beach, also known as “Boneyard Beach”. It was taken well after sunset, but a long 65-second exposure and a small flashlight were able to bring light back to the scene and tranquility back to the beach.

We used to have a different numbering system for prints on fine art paper than for print on canvas, as described in our blog post We’ve Changed Our Numbering System Again. For the Oak Tree Graveyard, the consolidated numbering system began at #8 (after 3 paper prints and 4 canvas prints had been made).
