Foggy Morning View #4

Driftwood always has had a special appeal to me. Not only has it withstood the ravages on the land but also those of the sea.....

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

A very artistic find in the fog...well, it must have compensated the loss of surroundings to the fog! And I like it that you left a bit of grey ocean in the upper part of the shot.

@Japanalia: Thank you very much Gabriela! Driftwood has always had a special draw for me! It's gnarled and weathered surfaces are fascinating...... ;-)

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

The more I look at it, the clerer it comes to me...a head of a sacrificed cow (?)

30 Oct 2010 11:41am

@Japanalia: ROFL....now that you mention it I can see it also! Thank you Gabriela! ;-))

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, Florida, United States

Waves tipping over, pointing the eyes to the "sacrificed cow" ... she does have a way with words!

DULCIE from Danville, CA, United States

Wonderful....massive and cold, and I can feel the gritty gray sand between my toes.
This looks like the wonderful beaches in Washington state !

@DULCIE: Thank you very much Dulcie! Yes, we were just on the border between Oregon and California.....

john4jack from Corvallis, Oregon, United States

marvelous piece of driftwood. if it were my photograph, i would crop it, especially from the top (then you wouldn't even need to straighten the horizon line; Judy has never let me get away with a crooked horizon)

30 Oct 2010 9:09pm

@john4jack: Thanks very much Jack! I left a bit of the foggy waves in as I felt it provided a nice counterpoint to the dark sand. ;-)

Porté puis abandonné par les flots... des gris qui apportent une belle ambiance mélancolique.
