My Image Of Seashore Erosion Revealing 2K Year Old Swamp Roots Is Trending


Through my decades of hiking the shorelines of the Outer Cape I've seen erosion come and go and this past weekend while the high tide was once again battering the shoreline at Eastham's Coast Guard beach I snapped an image of whats believed to be a cedar tree root structure that dates back to when the beach was a swamp about 2-thousand years ago.

The Friends Of The Cape Cod National Seashore shared my image socially and it's trending because it blew away all the previous post records of a combo of shares, engagements, people reached etc...

I've been photographing these over the past few years and this one shines because of the fog, the colors of the shifting sands and the fact that a wave just covered it leaving it looking as slick at the swamp peat that surrounds it...
