It's wonderful the way the sea makes its deposits upon the shore!
The main cause for failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want at the moment.

(I read this when I get into my D700 lust!!)
The natural placement of things give an opportunity for a great shot. I like the tone and framing.
I needed the quote earlier when I was looking at all of those lenses today.

@Barbara: You and me both on the quote!
Stunning! Your processing is perfect for this image.

@bluechameleon: Thanks, Sharon; I'm a sucker for driftwood.
joli shoot !!

This looks like it is ready to build a fire. I know it is damp but the "stack" does make one wonder.

le bois est un livre d'histoires ....................................................... le vent les emporte !

Usé, ce bois a du en voir du pays

Très belle image! Superbe lumière sur ces vieux troncs!

Great capture, Jack! Re: your quote, it's so hard to keep the wanter in check when we should be listening to the needer - the wanter seems to speak more loudly. =)
10 Feb 2009 7:02am
it is wonderful, i agree! it makes for a great image!
10 Feb 2009 7:08am
These logs look like they've just been set up for a nice fire. Looks like a good place for one on that chilly beach. Nice image.

I really like the glow of this shot, gorgeous. Really nicely done.
And that quote - oh man, that is SO true. (and I love your added extra underneath, it made me smile!)

One of my favouraite things is walking the BC coastline and photographing the driftwood, such magnificents forms and shapes that they make. This is a terrific image, Jack, superbly presented
10 Feb 2009 11:39am
Wonderful find. Love the composition and the color tones are superb.

Comme une image fantastique par sa composition et son traitement! superbe!
10 Feb 2009 1:25pm
Des bois échoués, un vécu à travers les océans, et bien au-delà, un traitement qui met de l'or à l'image, superbe ..
10 Feb 2009 1:44pm
Excellent shot. Love the light and the texture.
Nice quote. I have done that mistake so many times(chosing my momentary need); but still havent learnt the lesson :-(
10 Feb 2009 2:10pm
Amazing composition !
10 Feb 2009 2:12pm
Lovely warm light in this image. Fabulous quote! Worth keeping in mind.
10 Feb 2009 2:17pm
Really nice composition and lighting. What do you use for your frames?
10 Feb 2009 3:38pm
@PD: I use onOne's plug-in PhotoFrame 4. If it is a plain black frame, it is simply a Stroke.
I think I also need to memorize that quote. Because every now and then my head has started turning towards D300.
10 Feb 2009 3:53pm
@Ajay: Some of the tests rate the D90's sensor higher than that of the D300. I use my D80 while traveling as a second camera to my D300 (so I don't have to change lenses); many of my best photographs come from the D80. (Please don't tell my wife that.)
Even these once mighty trees end up looking like a pile of sticks when the ocean has its way with them. Great capture.
10 Feb 2009 3:58pm
wow! Golden colors!
10 Feb 2009 5:14pm
really nice colours in this still-life
10 Feb 2009 5:26pm
I think there are strange forces at work here....... it's a wonderful shot.
10 Feb 2009 6:33pm
Wonderful image...love the colors, drift wood is always so captivating. You got me on the quote...so very very true!
10 Feb 2009 7:26pm
very well seen
10 Feb 2009 10:01pm
I love the serendipity and the power of the water in 'placing' these logs of driftwood. I've always loved driftwood ever since I was a little girl -- still do.
10 Feb 2009 10:43pm
@Diane Schuller: You and me both, Diane.
great composition, light and toning! you have captured the detail very well - nicely done!
