Thank you, Alastair. I’d never seen yellow stuff on driftwood. I wonder if it is a kind of lichen.

Either lichen or fungi I’d say.

barnacles, yellow stuff, green stuff – this log has had a life. And still does! Nicely composed, with those curves. Was this in a place where an inlet or stream meets the ocean?

Not right here, no. I think it will be worth going back to the Robinson Preserve just to see the driftwood. We were lucky to be there at low tide; most of what I found interesting would probably be under water at high tide.

Ah, I see. And now you’re back in no-tide-land, with other pleasures to keep you busy!

Currently being kept busy by preparing tax stuff. Yuck. But enjoying reconnecting with all things Oberlin. (I’m a bit late in responding! Sorry.)

Beautiful image – especially like the shape of the wood, the barnacles and the greens and yellows. A 🙂

Thanks, Adrian. The barnacles are like settings for jewels, whose rubies and diamonds have returned to the sea.
