I think I know where the pink comes from on this photograph and the one of yesterday. See the pinkish little balls of sand formed by the fiddler crabs? I think the same stuff is responsible for both pinks: sulphur bacteria! I never noticed wood this color before, but I have seen the sand this color elsewhere and was told (by whom???) that it is evidence of sulphur bacteria. So I’m just guessing that the bacteria have attached themselves to the driftwood, too.

Quite a spectacular composition. To frame just the right segment of that scene was a tour de force. –Larry Porter
