  15. No one had gotten the tree? It has mean something for me as I looked into this photo, Something that is somehow makes me sad as the tree should have been where it's supposed to be. On the good thing aside, it is perfectly a balance combination, the shore and this tree, I so love it!

  24. Great shot! This capture looks mystical. The rippling effect is clear because of the light shining on it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Anni, that is gorgeous! I love the path of the sun on the water, and the little rills of sand that were formed by the receding water!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love that beauty of nature.

    ReplyDelete
  27. You just captured 'IT!' It is lovely and the details make one feel like one is standing right there! The ripples in the sand with the light cascading...and that tree...tells a thousand words...I wonder where all it has been? Thanks for sharing and for stopping by Three Pixie Lane!

  28. Anni, you have so many different talents. Right now I'm painting a ceramic Santa for my Etsy shop. I thought of you when I saw all the Santas. This is actually a Father Christmas.

    Love this photo. Been busy with Mom and haven't checked my email for a few days. Will try to check it a little later.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  31. In France we call it "Bois flotté" (driftwood) many artists used for their creation.

  34. what a lovely and serene sight. I would love to dip my toes.

  35. Now that is a great picture from an unusual perspective. I love it! Makes me want to go down to our part of the ocean and look for driftwood, although I don't remember ever finding any here.

    ReplyDelete
  36. OMG!!
    This is such a wonderful view... I'm going for a little while, just sit next to the sea here and enjoy this wonderful moment. The golden light feel on the skin, and listen to the silence ...

    isabella says thank you Anni

  37. Now that is one gorgeous shot, Anni! Imagine the stories that tree would tell if it could. Makes you wonder where it comes from and how long it's been adrift.

    Love your Fall blog decor, I need to sit down and get my blog decorated for Fall as well:-) xoxo

  38. What a beautiful photo!I dont think I have ever seen anything this large wash up on shore. Thanks for stopping by my blog by the way. What you can't tell from my picture on the gator is that its mouth is taped shut and there is a big burly gator wrangler man ready to pounce just off camera :) Not so very brave.

  39. Jessica But still...just climbin' on top of one like you did....that's either insanity or bravery.

  43. If it was in Borneo, people would chop the tree into logs and take it home as fire wood.
