Buried In Sand

I came across this piece of driftwood buried in the sand at Pukaskaw National Park. I was strolling the beach closes to the Pik River. It was late one evening as I was set up to compose another composition, that I looked behind me and saw the above scene. So I thought I would wait until the sun went down and the colors would warm up. There is so much detail to be found in this piece of wood along with the minuet patterns in the sand. This all about earth colors. This also simplicity.

Winter seems to have set in here now. Snow on the ground, cold winds and temperatures. Until next time happy trails.

Of Times Past

As I strolled the beaches in Pukaskaw National Park, I was on the lookout for something unique to photograph. In Horse Bay I came across a large chain attached to a piece of driftwood and buried in the sand. This chain probably comes from the time of logging in this area. The chains were used to hold the large timbers together to create log booms to haul to market.

I elected to shoot this composition vertically to keep things tight and not become over crowded. Thus the focal point is the chain and driftwood piece. At the same time you get at sense of the location. Which is a sandy beach, lots of driftwood, shoreline and sky. There is even rock in the background. The beaches on Lake superior are loaded with driftwood at the high water mark.

This weekend is the start of the 36th La Cloche Art Show. If you are in the area go and check it out. Well that is it for this week. Until next time happy trails
