The ocean front has fewer features than the salt marshes away from it.  Smaller details and man-made structures become more important.  These images are from Castaway Preserve which abuts the Intracoastal Waterway.  It's a tidal marsh much frequented by fishermen who fish for bait to use when they venture out to sea.  At low tide, of course, they have to set their lines well away from the muddy marsh.  This pier serves as a platform for them and a place to launch boats.  (Fim, #15 deep yellow filter)

Nice images. Castaway is only 2 miles from my home so frequent visitor. The fisherman I believe are catching bait fish there before they head out for their real fishing.

Thanks, Doug. Castaway and Dutton Island have become my favorite salt marsh sites. Usually very interesting in this season of remarkable skies!
