Shadow Shot Sunday

Thanks to Tracy over at Hey Harriet for hosting us, you can visit her over at Shadow Shot Sunday: http://heyharriet.blogspot.com/


I love going down to the beach after a big storm, so yesterday late afternoon we drove down to see what was going on. We have had three days of what has been called a "Weather Beast". Rain, howling wind, thunder and lightning.


This huge tree trunk has appeared over the last two weeks, it wasn't here on our last visit. It must have washed up on the beach as the fence is not broken.

I love our wild west coast; wonderful photo. We certainly have had wild weather, we were at a wedding in Hamilton during the storm on Friday night which was quite an experience!

Sarah

Wow that's impressive-it must have been a big storm! Would you mind if I printed a copy of your picture for my beach combing journal-I know this could not be beach combed but it is in line with the general theme!

Sarah

Oh-and I love the term 'weather beast'!

Angie

All the bad weather you've been getting I'm so glad you are OK & finding some sun!! Great shadow.

Hey Harriet

Wow! The weather must have been wild crazy mad to have managed that! An impressive shadow shot it makes! Hope you have a great week. One filled with nicer weather :)

Nice shadow shot! I love to walk the beach and see what all may have washed ashore! Once I found a note in a bottle.

Dianne

Ashley Sisk

That's a wonderful shadow and what an interesting tree.

wow...very cool. nature...gotta love it's mystery.

Annie

What an excellent shot. The shadow itself is almost lost in the dark sand. Almost, being the operative word, the bare glimpse of it really engages the viewer.

Melissa

The ocean is so huge, it's amazing to think of what could be washed up aye.
Great shot.

Sammy

Given the stormy weather we have been having I am not surprised that something as massive as this has washed ashore. Great Capture Mum

urban muser

The Summer Kitchen Girls

We're wondering what else washed up if that tree did....zeesh!! Weather best indeed!!

Lisa's RetroStyle

Cool shot. Is the beach of black sand?

Ralph

The fury of nature is beyond bounds - here, the power and force of the sea tossed this tree as if it was a matchstick. Yet nature is so delicate, it stopped just before smashing the fence, as if the force became tired of it all and retreated back to the seas. This is wonderful capture (and happy the weather is not so furious any more)

Beverley Baird

what a massive tree to be uprooted! Great shadows for the day!

justine
