This is the first picture in a series of outdoor / nature photographs titled Ephemera. The inspiration for this series came from the fact that 3 days after I took this shot, the subject was gone. High tides and winter storms had washed the tree trunk off the bank of the river mouth where I had found it. Effectively, the subject disappeared as though it had never existed at all.
I came across this subject along a stretch of beach on the north coast of Haida Gwaii where the Sangan River flows into Dixon Entrance (the body of water in the North Pacific that separates the Queen Charlotte Islands / Haida Gwaii from the islands off the Alaska Panhandle).
