Superb shot - the driftwood appears ageless and almost fossilised.

Monique from Koh Samui, Thailand

If I find driftwood like that on the beach, I try to take it back home for the garden but this one is a bit too big ;) Beautiful framing Jack and great colors surrounding that piece of wood.

Doug Hickok from Charleston, South Carolina, United States

I imagine this old driftwood to be all the remains of a quite venerable old tree. I wonder how old it is. Nice image in the way the soft light reveals its smooth texture.

This looks large enough to sit upon ... and what a story it could tell.
I agree, the blog you referenced is excellent, and likewise, your PS.

Interesting study of this weathered old stump. I'm not sure the ragged border's color is a good fit for the subject, though.

Wow that piece looks like it might be from Dinosaur National Monument or Petrified Forest instead of the Pacific Northwest coastline. I love the details in the piece and the border is absolutely perfect! ;-)
