Marc Riboud, a French photographer, once said, “Photography enjoys life every hundredth of a second.” Whether photography or photography is your interest, there are many great places to take your photos in the Jacksonville area .
Here are some points to look at:
Experience a graveyard of giant driftwood trees at Big Talbot Island State Park on Nassau Sound. These ancient trees have fallen over the years as the coast has receded, resulting in what people compare to an elephant cemetery. The massive bones of these trees have been bleached and beaten in the sun, which leaves interesting landmarks. The boneyard actually protects forests and inland areas by breaking up incoming winds and waves, which helps limit erosion. Visit this place to experience the natural elements of nature working to sustain itself.
