Salt Flats ~ St. Helena Island, SC

Clouds like bushes like clouds.

postcards from the road

 

Photo from a few years ago. Upper reaches of marshes on and around  barrier sea islands sometimes form flat salt pans. Flooded with only a couple of inches of sea water at high tides, evaporation in the hot southern sun increases salinity, which settles out into the soil. Only the hardiest of plants encroach at the fringes.
