Suzi! I Like this shot and presume it is a fascinating piece of wood... it has an errie resemblance to a particular whale spieces (I cannot grasp the name in my mind at this time, but I think you will know). Is it the baleen? Fondly, River
Hello Suzi it is very nice and special sharp photo. LIKE, Best wishes, Micky.
Great form, especially that its wet and shiny.The gems that drift in from the sea!!, L3, FRED
Quite beautiful dearest LTM the best wooden starfish ever or maybe just the knotted tresses of a passing Mermaid ~ a YSL for such art ~ Hugs ~GW
Awesome photo! In the upper right corner, it kind of looks like a seal or sea lion face. Like!
I love this one dear Suzi, and, like River, I think it looks like part of a whale flipper covered in barnacles. A very elegant and fascinating art-form of Nature. So well seen and so well photographed!
Warm hugs, Amelia

Best wishes from Dubai, Bassam
The baleen whale has this scoring, like enormous corduroy, on its underside, River, and a number of other species as well, I think, on flukes or 'chin'. See, your memory is excellent! Glad you like this one. I added a couple more images as explanation of this enormous root system. Happy weekend (O:
Thanks very much, Micky and Fred - a fascinating find on the beach. More info added with new photos. Enjoy your weekend (O:

Thank you, Pamela, and yes, I see what you mean - sorry to cut its nose out of the image! Happy weekend (O:
Huge thanks, dearest Amelia - what a lovely compliment. I've added a couple more images with surmising as to the origin of this very large and fascinating driftwood. Our storm wimped out and then came in again with a light show and thunder - an amazing day of contrasts. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Morning hugs from a wet night on the Bay (O:

Many thanks, Mirjana, Bassam, Matthias and J.c - I was happy to see this amazing root formation. Even here, in the land of trees, this is an unusual find. Happy weekend greetings from the Oregon Coast (O:
Great shape and composition! LIKE
Quite a remarkable sculpture, Suzi. Wonderful. And superbly photographed too. Needs to be hung in a gallery.
..and added to my favourites. Perhaps I should seek permission to hang it in my gallery. Great image indeed.
A happy hello, Anne! Thanks - it was a great find. Best wishes from the Coast (O:
