Butt Swell

We had a severe drought this winter and the Waccamaw River swamp was pretty dry. You could walk many places that would normally require a boat. Did you ever notice how cypress trees are larger at the base then narrow to the normal trunk size? A forester friend of mine gave me the technical term for this condition... butt swell. A good many humans have this condition too. ;-o

The sea oats at Huntington Beach State Park cast some interesting shadows. Nikon D70 & Nikkor 18-200 at 60mm, f9, 1/320s, IDO 200, and ND filter -2.
