Driftwood

I mentioned yesterday that driftwood at times washes up on the Langosta beach. Here is a particularly artistic example.

This driftwood is in sand that is exposed at low tide in the mouth of the Langosta estuary. I do not know whether this driftwood was carried in from the ocean or floated down the estuary. Its weight must have caused it to stand upright as the tide receded, which made for a better composition for this photo.

This week we are showing some close up photos of plants and animals of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

It's a fine nature made artwork.

It's a beautiful example of beautiful driftwood, which is why people love and collect them. The sky in your photo is also beautiful.

David, I certainly was redundant in that previous comment...lots of "beautifuls" yet it is an accurate statement. Just got up, waiting for coffee so perhaps I should be more alert before I check my favorite blogs!!

This is lovely - composition, aided by driftwood position as you say, is wonderful.

Driftwood is so interesting and this one make a nice addition to the beach photo. You can find so many shapes and textures of wood on the beach.

Driftwood is always so fascinating to me. I have a cousin who makes birdhouses, planters, and even some outdoor furniture out of it.
