There is a wonderful quality to driftwood that is so endearing. This particular piece seems to have a life of it's own! A magical capture Stephen! ;-)

Still the lovely silvered patina and twisted shape. It HAS changed position over the years.....fascinating the work that nature has wrought. And a very handsome shot !

I liked your photo of Annie here yesterday. But it'd hard to believe, that it's the same piece of wood on this photo! Anyway - going back to the same places again is something, I often do too. And often experiencing surprises.....
