Creek, marsh, lake, river, ocean – show what you’ve come across at water’s edge.
It’s the transition – water to land – that produces so much fun drama for this photographer .
I’d enjoy seeing your favorite examples.
Along coastal Washington, I find a lot of weird stuff arriving on the tide. Not all of it’s worth a sheet of film – last week, I picked up a rusty soda can (I think) with Japanese writing. But so much of what I discover is. And of course the tide tosses-up new subjects every day. Make that twice a day.
This gigantic trunk floated out of the nearby Olympic rain forest & crashed here – where the sun bleaches it against coffee-colored sands. Despite the difficult mid-day contrast and simple composition, I thought the primitive beat-up shape was still worth a shot. Looks like a dinosaur’s thigh bone. The left side is 7 or 8 feet tall! Wish there was something better for scale than my footprints passing by in the foreground.
A month later the log was gone. It will return some stormy day.
