Driftwood on a Vancouver beach

It’s a well-known dead tree, big enough to show up at the center of this satellite photo. I have heard that it washed up during the Seventies. Friends took me down here, I think, on my first adult visit to Vancouver; it has decayed visibly but gracefully since then. I usually try to take first-time visitors here.

Great presentation of these beautiful patterns on driftwood. These pieces make our beaches unique and more alive than the groomed beaches of resorts.

That is beautiful. It looks like it is a painting. If you keep looking, each time you see something different although it is a static image. Really beautiful.
