Drift wood

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 29 April 2010 in Plant & Nature.

Along the Washington coast there are large piles of drift wood that have been deposited by Pacific ocean storms. This pile of twisted wood caught my eye. I liked the textures and thought it would make a good subject for a black and white.

They used to make some amazing furniture with this driftwood and wonder if they still do. This driftwood shot is absolutely stunning.
