These Domes off Marco Island, Fl were once a vacation home to an eccentric millionaire. Hurricane Wilma destroyed the shore they were built on and they are now quickly being swallowed up by the sea.

Welcome to Naturescapes!

This scene makes me think of the aftermath of the apocalypse....... and the insane things that man creates as a blot on the landscape! Le t's hope the sea removes them sooner rather than later. Certainly a thought provoking image, Jayson.

Thank you Carol. You are spot on with your interpretation. Here is the link to the story behind the Domes.

That’s interesting. A nice capture showing the decaying dreams of an eccentric. Glad nature is cleaning up.

Such an interesting photo and story! I really like how you got the sun shining through this bizarre structure. To me the domes look like R2D2 s marching along, though a bit decrepit! Or maybe rusty ladybugs....

Welcome to NSN, and thanks for sharing this!
