One of the many dead trees left behind by Hurricane Charley on his path of vengeance on us in 2004 as he came on shore at a category 4 hurricane, even though the tree is dead it still adds beauty to the shore and it is still standing as the waves of the Gulf of Mexico continues to batter it .
Capture at by Estero lagoon on Estero Island, Florida.
