wood, sand and rocks

Clear skies, but strong winds at Lone Ranch beach.


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. 
H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You

  1. Driftwood is always so interesting. You never know what the sea is going to create.

    I keep thinking I must tattoo the first part of that quote on my forearm where I won’t forget it, because it’s so motivating.


    • …and it moves around, too! 😉 Having reached a rather ripe old age, the quote is so much more meaningful. The thought always comes to mind: if not now, when?


    • It would be impossible for me to pick a favorite for something like a book cover. The coast offers so many wonderful scenes. I can’t wait to see what Kerry comes back with from his trip here!


    • Oddly enough it doesn’t take a whole lot to move those enormous trunks. Folks have been injured or killed not realizing it can take a wave spreading water just a few inches deep to move those things. The storms do tend to shift things around though!


  2. I love that quote too. I have a similar one on my blog saying ‘Man cannot discover new oceans until he has courage to lose sight of the shore’.

    Love your seascape. Wonderful composition.

    It’s also a great example of how having a focus in the foreground draws your eye into the scene. Your eye sees the driftwood and then is drawn up to the rock on the centre left of the frame and then across to the large rock on the right, then further back into the rocks on the other side of the cove.


  3. Very inspirational quote and an awesome pile of driftwood on the beach! I love the stuff and sometimes think about living in a cottage by the sea and having lots of driftwood in my garden, and perhaps making some artistic outdoor furniture out of it.I love how smooth it can feel and the colour it goes when it’s bleached by the sun.
