ABC Wednesday - D is for Driftwood



D is for Driftwood.............



a macro shot of a driftwood texture




This was a whole tree trunk that had washed ashore on the rocks at the ocean.

From this macro shot, you can see the texture and how it splinters away in tiny pieces.

The surface is really quite fragile, and it has been weathered to a shade of light gray.

It must have been one heck of a storm that threw this giant up so high in the rocks, and it must have been at sea for a long time also.

Makes you wonder how far and how long it traveled to get here.

I enjoy taking macro images like these - designers also enjoy these types of shots as they make nice backgrounds.


This is the third round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

    I'm deeply impressed.
