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.

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!

Amelia Royan on November 9, 2012

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

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:

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:

Quite a remarkable sculpture, Suzi. Wonderful. And superbly photographed too. Needs to be hung in a gallery.
