This piece of driftwood was found at the Edge of The World, Gardiner Point, Arthur River, West Coast Tasmania, Australia.
This shot won a Bronze Award in the 2010 Premier Better Photoshop Techniques Magazine Photography Competition (Australia).
The sea west of Tasmania is the longest uninterrupted expanse of ocean on the globe. From Argentina the currents sweep unimpeded more than halfway around the planet until they hit this point. As was well understood by the ancients and indigenous people to this day, special geographic features of the earth create mystical and spiritual, even sacred places that can impact on human consciousness.
I used a Canon DSLR EOS 350D camera and 75-300mm lens.
