Erosion killed trees at Hunting Island, SC USA

Hunting Island in South Carolina USA is gradually being eroded. As the ocean reaches growing trees, they die and all that's left are their roots and trunks sticking out of the sand. Image taken in April. Hunting Island is well known for its five mile white sand beach. This particular tree's roots have been bleached white by the sun, wind, and flying sand.
