The Sunset Pictures thread is moving along nicely, beautiful shots from all over. This one is to showcase the often fascinating pile-ups or shapes of driftwood washed up on the beaches around the world.
BC is a logging-intensive environment, has been for decades and so even the inside waters collect significant amounts of driftwood as logging debris finds its way to the beaches. Winter rainstorms wash a lot of trees into the sea intact. Of course the outer West Coast is prime driftwood territory too.
These first are from Barkley Sound, on Vancouver Island's west coast.
Also in Barkley I found this old stump in a hidden nook.. kind of like a surrealist painting with the colour tones and patterns
This camel head has been stuck in the sand at Hornby Island's Tribune Bay for the last several years.
And this aptly-named 'Driftwood Bay' on Jedidiah Island collects samples all winter long with it's wide open SE exposure.'
And then there's what's done with the driftwood. Always a favourite with kids as a beach activity (building forts and sunshades), and at Wallace Island there are many customized pieces of driftwood commemorating hundreds of boats' visits to this island park.
Lets see your examples!
