A canal subdivision near the water. Wetlands can be seen as a buffer.

Oblique aerial view of area in Tampa Bay, Florida, showing a classic example of a bulkheaded canal development that impedes landward migration of wetlands. This development appears to have been constructed on high, for-the-most-part non-wetland ground, perhaps impacting few existing regulated wetlands, but in effect destroying inundatable lands just inland of existing coastal wetlands. Bay waters are at the top of the photo, with fringing estuarine wetlands just below. Notice that the canal development, in the lower central part of the pnoto, is relatively recent, with construction still occurring on the left. Image captured from Google Earth.
