More wood texture
More wood texture

Compare to the photo of the 20th.  This wood is on the stairway down to the beach; it has been milled and installed and is very weathered indeed.  The sprinkling of sand is like jewels of salt.  I didn’t realize the shadow was there when I took the photo.  Sometimes the sun is so bright and the angle is so awkward that I just have to shoot and trust.  The trust worked ok this time — you don’t get to see the ones in which it didn’t!

Natural wood, in situ, compared to human-formed wood, engineered. In both cases, the texture of the shards is compelling.
