45 - Coral Castle

Canon 5DmkII, 16-35mm at 16mm, iso400, f/22, -2,0,+2, +CPL

Today I just wanted to go some where new so off I went to The Coral Castle. This place is amazing and a must see if your in the area. It was built by one man working alone named Ed Leedskalnin, between 1920 and 1940. What's remarkable is ED was only 5 feet tall and weighted 100 pounds. The work was done with hand tools made from old car parts.
