52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge

41. Splash!


There is always driftwood on Playa Barqueta in Chiriqui Province, sometimes much more than at other times; sometimes just little twigs and branches that have washed up on the black sands and other times huge trunks and root balls. Over the years, some driftwood has been buried, some has moved hundreds of yards up and down the beach, rolling with the ebb and flow of the tide, and some has been picked up by beach combers. This particular log has rolled and changed position and seems to be on its way to the burial stage. While strolling along the water’s edge one late afternoon, the waves pounding and splashing up and over the driftwood, I captured the action. Splash!

  1. Wow… and evidently it will be washed back out to see…. What a great photo….


    • Dede, I have seen a couple of those really huge logs deeply buried years after making their first appearances. One of my favorites that I have photographed over 5 years has changed so much since I first spotted it back in 2009. It has moved at least a mile back and forth. Last time I walked far enough down the beach, much of it was buried in sand.


  2. Awesome splash!! I love beaches. 😀


  3. You and me both, Laura…in sunshine, rain, and snow! 🙂


  4. It looks like a big hand and wrist lunging out of the sea!
