First the tide rushes in
Plants a kiss on the shore
Then rolls out to sea
And the sea is very still once more

As I saw the thumb of your photo, I saw the tree like a hand. I like the textures on the tree, and always love the sculptures that ocean creates on woods we found by the sea. You did a great work with the lights and that details on the foam in the foreground are beautiful as well. Excellent work!
I love the quotation, which fits perfectly.

I really love the series of your photos from this part of Kenya, if I should ever have a chance to go back to Kenya, I will definately consider this place. All the photos you show of this place are just incredibly beautiful. Perhaps is the right time of year and day, the light is soft that you you very nice enen lgiht, the tree trunk seem to almost be the landmark, without it, it would just be any other beach. Another beautiful shot, and one that fit the theme of motion as the wave gently rushing in and out of the beautiful sandy beach.
Way also for TMT and Me
Wow, the low POV works extremely well here. The light management is top. I wish could get up that early too.

A beautiful sculpture made by nature, I like this sculpture in my private collection, if it were possible, alias are several pieces that form a marvelous set.
I suggest it as a photo in black and white, would be more dramatic
I really liked, sensitive capture
O poder cenico de um galho levado a praia, capturado com muita criatividade por uma grande angular, parabéns, gostei demais!
I love finding something like this. The shapes are truly beautiful and to me they look like they are yearning to ge back into the water. Nice timing with the nwater as well. I am liking your work more and more. We go to the west coast of Vancouver Island every two years or so and I would always photograph one big tree with its roots until last time. It has now disappeared either due to very high water or a log salvager.
The nature and the sea are wonderful scarvers of dead wood... Thank you to your photographer's third eye to give them motion and life.

Nice, moody composition - driftwood on a deserted beach with vaguely directionless light. Creates a bit of a disturbing image here. Very nice work.
The more I look to this image the more I find it classy and sophisticated.
The thoughtful simplicity of the composition and the colors - the cold light blue
of the water and the sky and the earthy tones of the branches... excellent match.
the textures are bonuses.
sorry I'm late, but it is still a really wonderful image and a great poem to go with it. What I really love here is the smooth water rushing in to the shore. It really is a very moody image - you should include that in the category. The tree is dead but the water is alive. Wonderful contrast. A really great photo!
Hope you're doing well! See you around!
