Driftwood – Beaver River Beach

Daily Image - 4 March 2012 - Driftwood - Beaver River Beach

There’s nothing like the freedom of walking a deserted beach, especially after a storm. You never know what you’ll find, especially if you can get out there before the “professional scavengers” get there on their ATVs. Half the fun is wondering where the objects came from and what their original purpose was. I love photographing found objects in situ. Moving them to make the image more interesting is simply not in the cards… its cheating!

Of course there’s a down-side to these walks too. Many nature programmes have noted the degree to which 20th and 21st century pollution has invaded our oceans. Our beaches too are littered with man-made debris. Plastic and rubber are everywhere, despoiling what should be a beautiful, clean, pristine place.
