Featured in the group Flotsam and Jetsam

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).

    wonderful shot Edward, and lovely description too. You got it at the right time

  • Thank you very much, Vickie. I came across a quote in Nature Photographer Magazine to the effect that the best outdoor / nature photography is “a rare scene taken in rare light”. I hope this series lives up to that. I’m still on my learning curve. Peace – Edward

    Beautiful capture, Edward. Very good composition. Indeed, you was lucky to capture this trunk before it was gone. :)

  • Thanks very much, Arvy. My wife is convinced that there is alot more depth to this piece than I’ve addressed in the description text. Glad you like it. Peace – Edward

    Very nice Edward. I hope the netting wasn’t washed out into the waterway along with the tree :)

  • Thank you, Judi. Let’s hope the net slipped off before the trunk was gone again. Peace – Edward

    Wonderful capture and maybe soon you will have another surprise there on the beach. Your shot is just beautiful.

  • Thank you so much! I did actually go up to Haida Gwaii again but, altho I found some fascinating things on the beach, nothing as ‘ephemerally’ evocative as this. Peace – Edward
