Beach Driftwood


I discovered I scream the same way whether I'm about to be devoured by a great white shark or if a piece of seaweed touches my foot.






Did you know that dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish?

The driftwood is so interesting, I love to look at all the swirls and other shapes in the wood. You got some great shadows too.

I just want to know how you know you would react the same. Are the Great Whites in town? LOL!

The lighting and detail on these pictures is very attractive. I, too, love all the swirls and lines on the wood. I also enjoy the commentary, so delightfully off-beat.

Nature's artwork is awesome!

That driftwood is wonderful; it always has a beautiful patina after being tumbled and tossed in the water.

These photos are mesmerizing, I could look at them all day. I have studied these and the wood has such detail and texture. OH to be able to have some just to hold and touch.
What made those holes in that one log?

Awesome!

This is why I don't like the ocean--you never know what's going to touch your feet! My idea of a swimming "hole" is a clear pool that you can walk around and survey the bottom before diving in.

Love your header!

Best,
Bonnie

LOVING this! I never see driftwood, at least I don't think! Your first shot is very similar to my header shot today!! My faves are the one right above the cool dolphin joke and the one with the holes in it!!

Great Photos!

I always thought dolphins were at least smarter than a 5th grader. :-)

Rose said...

Great post...interesting images.

My husband always says he worked 25 years to learn to be a doorman for our cats.

I'm loving these drift wood pictures. I can relate to the screaming. That seaweed is really scary stuff :)

LC said...

Amazing images of the wood's texture and colors. Loved the partying skimmers in the previous post, too!

Chatty Crone said...

You wonder how the driftwood drifts and gets to where it is at. All the knots in it.

I scream the same too.

And who is trained - the dolphins or the people?

Love,
sandie

Driftwood is natures art show. I love it.

Ann said...

you can start a new and profitable hobby, making furniture out of driftwood.

Angela said...

Wow! Those are some awesome pictures! Just beautiful! Such a lovely beach too! Love that white looking sand too!

Yes, I'm afraid I do too- most definitely! I love dolphins! What a pretty place and looks so secluded and peaceful. I think I mentioned we have mostly black sand here and lots of white on the West side of the island. Anyway I will check those lizards out shortly:)
