Beach Log Colors

Beach Log Colors

by Dawn Farmer

 

The last few days have been foggy and chilly.The fog has been dense; refusing to yield to whatever sun lurks above it.This morning it rolled up the hill from the sound in visible waves.It’s been so thick that the ferry boat is invisible – a disembodied fog horn in the murk.

The beach logs were beautiful this morning.Their natural rich colors enhanced by the dampness and the surrounding grayness.It struck me as a reminder that we can find beauty and color in even the dullest surroundings – if we choose to look.

  1. It struck me as a reminder that we can find beauty and color in even the dullest surroundings – if we choose to look.

    It behooves us to look, no? Especially when we can capture our sight and share it.

    I love driftwood/beach logs. The confluence of wood and water makes poetry. I saw one recently that was completely encased in clear ice, magnifying and distorting the grain like some sort of alien gemstone.

  2. Russ and Lex – Thanks. I hope you took a picture of the log entombed in ice. How cool. I have an enormous collection of beach wood/log pictures. I never tire of the endless expressions of color, partial bark, smooth wood, grain, markings, shapes of roots – and on and on. It’s nature’s sculpture garden.

  3. i have a lot of pictures of wood and bark, too. unfortunately, i don’t have a macro lens yet, so most of them are less than stellar. i’ve thinking of doing something what you did for ages, but i never seem to get around to it. :-/ same thing with rocks.
