Unstoppable Creativity In Our World

ZONING OUT and relaxing on a comfy beach blanket is what many people like to do at Crescent Beach when the weather gets warmer. But before long sandcastles are built and artistic urges bloom.

The sun hides its glow, skies turn gray and drizzles fall but throughout it all the desire to rearrange the scenery and create remains strong.

Some folks had a lot of fun building driftwood sculptures at the beach.

Here are the closeups.

Even though their efforts were written in sand and time will reshape the art, they did something unique that others could enjoy.

It was about rising up from that sleepy place to do something and grow.

The buds that once seemed dead spilled into view.

Fresh explorers with new plans rummaged through an old driftwood fort.

Everything was fluid, including ladder reflections by the pier. The restless water distorted whatever it mirrored and each nanosecond unveiled a different colourful painting. I turned up the palette a bit to better see the chaotic yet always symmetrical and flowing compositions unfolding relentlessly before my eyes.

  1. Great shots! Love those reflections!

  2. Such great photos! I would love to be on this beach :)

  3. Seen from a distance (the second image), the driftwood sculptures look like perching birds or basking turtles on the logs. I wonder the creators intended that? Mirror reflection on almost the still water is beautiful but I prefer changing distorted reflections. The captured moment of water surface design is like paper marbling.


  4. Beach creations are wonderful and lovely macro floral shots and more wonderful photography!

    Wishing you peace in each day ~ ^_^

  5. I think I would enjoy trying to make a driftwood sculpture. They look easy until you showed us the close ups.

  6. What a lot of talent around your beaches. Must be the fresh air?

  7. Now that is art I would really love to create! Such a wonderful beach. My kind of place.

  8. I've seen rock beach sculptures, but never wood. They must fall during our southeast storms, giving new artists lots of material to reuse. - Margy

  9. Lovely shots down at the beach. I love the creativity of those beach sculptures!

  10. I love the driftwood art. Great shots.

  11. I could zone out real easy at Crescent beach :) Wonderful pics, love the flowers. Those last two shots would be mesmerizing and I always love to see what people can do with pieces of driftwood.
