Palm Tree, Cannon Springs, Florida. 2020

A sabal palm, the state tree of Florida, struggles to survive along the banks of the Cannon Springs run in Florida. Composed in February during the 2019-20 drawdown of the Ocklawaha River, water levels at this spot are almost always maintained several feet higher. Note the waterline on the trees in the background for reference to these mismanaged public lands.

Once a forest, these riverine wetlands are currently flooded beneath the backed-up waters of the Rodman Dam. The waters are lowered only every three to four years, at which time the ecosystem rapidly attempts to recover.
