Driftwood accumulates in large amounts on the Pacific coast. I liked this shot for both its green quality and the extensive driftwood on the beach.
Looks like the morning after a big storm.

Yes, it does, that's what I thought. That's a ton of driftwood. I like the contrast between the green, living half and the gray, dead half.

Intéressant, en effet, ce contraste entre le végétal vivant et le bois mort, bien composée !

Live and killed
Paradox is a good

A very nice photo and view angle, bravo

Bleached bones - where trees go to die. Nice shot.

Great contrast between the living and the dead. Well seen Don

I like the composition, fine shot

It's an interesting shot in that the horizon is hidden in the fog and mist making for little separation between ocean and sky. It's almost like there are three separate photos. There green growth, the driftwood and the sea and ski. Very unusual and therefore interesting!

Very nicely composed picture. I like the contrast between the living vegetation and the dead wood!

Nice composition. Love the colors!

Great composition . I love more that beautiful tree than all this drift wood :))

I get a feeling of loneliness looking at this. A feeling of being miles away from anyone.

Good afternoon Don,
yes, I am always amazed about what everything is washed up after a flood and left to lie. In the past, people gathered up the stale wood and took it home with you. There they laid it to dry in the basement and it was then chopped into small pieces or sawed to heat the oven to the apartment. At the present time is the wood on the beach, mainly because all the apartments are equipped with central heating (oil or gas). I like your
presentation and give it against brilliant color. Today the weather was cloudy and light snowflakes were falling again. Winter is not over yet ..... I wish you and your family a beautiful day.
Dear greetings Christel

Your framing is amazing on this post, Don.

I've never seen so much drift wood in one spot. Is it from the logging industry? Makes a fine image.

Excellent composition. I love the driftwood. Very nice fog over the ocean.

One of my favourite pleasures is photographing driftwood on the BC coastline, Don. There is a guy down the road from my family in Sidney who has created a whole landscape of people and articles carved from the wood pieces. This is a lovely shot that makes me yearn to be standing there now.

Tristesse ... que m'inspire cette photo, malgré un bon cliché.

The trees standing on the bank provide nice counterpoint to the downed wood. The featureless sea and sky blending together without a noticable hozizon is an attractive feature.
9 Feb 2010 5:43pm
look at all that debri, great colors on this. nice find!
9 Feb 2010 6:05pm
I remember Mary Beth from Stanwood showing pics of lots & lots & lots of driftwood on the beach. Amazing how many dead trees there are! Where do they all come from?
9 Feb 2010 6:41pm
looks like bones, dried bones
9 Feb 2010 8:03pm
My favorite part of this photo is the Pacific blending into the sky. I love that.
9 Feb 2010 9:04pm
Great photo. It looks like after a tsunami... very impresive one
9 Feb 2010 9:09pm
WoW has it been a storm of hurricane there? I like the composition.
9 Feb 2010 10:22pm
what a stunning and interesting shot, like an elephants graveyard there :) beautifully done!
9 Feb 2010 11:51pm
Very interesting composition and rendering. Bravo!
9 Feb 2010 11:56pm
A wonderful shot. These tree bone yards are always interesting. The lovely one still growing is even better.
10 Feb 2010 12:09am
wow, that is a beautiful beach. i have never seen anything quite like it. really well captured
10 Feb 2010 1:15am
wow.. it's like a swath of dead white trees.. beautiful shot.. :)
Thanks for showing us a photo like this. I never knew driftwood accumulated like this on beaches somewhere.....This photo is soft, inviting and beautiful!
10 Feb 2010 3:01am
Well done, Don. I like the contrast in the halves of this composition.
