Driftwood Unchained by MotherNature

This is probably a piling from a pier somewhere in New Jersey. It was half buried in the sand beside the jetty at Barnegat Inlet this past summer – long before Hurricane Sandy.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    Beautiful light and composition. It’s always exciting to look what has drifted in from the sea.

  • The tide comes in bearing gifts and then retreats, leaving those gifts for us to find and marvel in:>) Thanks for coming by!

    A great shot – I wonder if it is still there ?

  • Thanks for the nice comment and fave, Dennis:>) Nope – the piling is GONE! I guess the message is “Carpe Diem”.
