    What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    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.

    Thank you. A long term theme I think.

    Beautiful photo, Jim. I like the effect of the Cooke lens. It has a nice tone and texture. What film did you use?

    Looks like Reno had a little snow although I don't see any traces of it in the trees.
