Driftwood by jgpittenger

Driftwood

Wild and windy day at the beach. Recently the tides have been really high bringing huge logs of many shapes and sizes onto the beach...a big hazard to sit on one since we lose people every year with sneaker waves. Pearl of course had to climb it but the tide was way out so it seemed safe.
For flash of red February. Thanks for your visits, comments, suggestions, favs
Beautiful sharp focus and detail. Works really well in B&W

Wonderful shapes and textures in this driftwood Jane. Interesting what you say about the waves there, goes to show one needs local knowledge when dealing with nature.

@golftragic I wonder if it's because we have so many small earth quakes off in the ocean

This log looks as if it belongs on @graemestevens beach...

I can see so many different shapes and things in this log. A dinosaur, an eagle. Fabulous.

Very interesting to read about you losing "people every year with sneaker waves" and the mini earthquakes. In what way? Surely not from huge waves washing them out to sea? Or am I missing something?
Wonderful textures in your shot.

@kwiksilver yes, big waves washing them out to sea, clobbering them with logs or against rocky shorelines. It always worries me when I see tourists sitting on the innocent appearing logs

That's really interesting. We get huge swells and waves on our coastline but not often on a beach. Fishermen are sometimes swept off rocks, or people get caught in riptides but thankfully not too many.

@jgpittenger @deborah63 That's just uncanny...I love it too, excellent processing :)
