December Beach Break

This shot is a metaphor (as title says). I jumped down from a rock onto wet sand and fell and fractured my hand. This tree represents me fairly well, I think.

My reason for doing a collection of shots from our December beach break is that I am somewhat disabled with my hand in plaster and can't concentrate on new stuff.

overall a nice warmth, with a little bit of added menace by those craggy, jutting branches - suitably metaphoric! Hope you are mending well from your accident :)

Sorry about your fall and fractured hand. And I thought urban exploring was hazardous to our health.. I guess you could call this exploration. You have to watch where you step or jump, even walking can put you in a hole. Be careful and take care of that hand! At first I thought the driftwood was antlers..interesting composition!

The water turns wood into bones.

I love the photo.

Sorry about your hand. I hope it heals soon so that you can get back to shooting new stuff.

Sorry to hear about your hand! That golden brown color is so warm and inviting.

I like the way the tree stands out against the background colors. Maybe just a bit oversharpened? Hope your hand is feeling better!

Wonderful creature - to me he looks like a skinny albino anteater admiring his manicure. Keep your spirits up and bet there will be a pleasant thing or two discovered through having to do things differently ;-)

Terrific shot and wonderfully processed. I now understand your desire to come closer to these antlers crying for mercy.
Hope you’ll recover soon Marion.
Waiting for the rest of the batch

I was in the antler camp at first, but I totally get the metaphor. Having gone though a 3rd surgery on my shoulder this year (total reverse replacement this time)- also the result of a fall..... I empathize with the difficulties of producing new images. I'm so sorry about your fall and hope your recovery goes well.

Wonderful combination of textures and tones. I love the unexpected starkness of the branches - which actually make me think more of a dead deer than a tree - against the warmth of the sand.

very successful abstract, imo, the different areas of light and dark, the curves of the branches

Your title eluded me before reading your comment. Glad you're on the mends and wish you a speedy recovery. I fall into (no pun intended) the antler camp. Very sculptural driftwood branches. Nice!

I think this is very fitting for your circumstance. Once I read your description I immediately saw what you were telling us!

Very nice image. My first thought was antlers. Second was desert trees. I really like it.

i'm really sorry to hear about your hand Marion .. and i love the way you have connected the tree and your broken hand as a metaphor .. :)
its funny, but not funny .. but a couple of years ago i was getting thru a fence to get a photo of some dew .. and fell on my arm and broke my elbow .. it had already been broken in a car accident years before .. so it was a break on a break .. i still have metal in it from the attempted photo incident .. and want to have the metal taken out .. it hurts a lot if i lean on it .. but i'm scared that taking the metal out might make the arm worse ..
anyway .. sorry to make this a bit about me .. but i felt we could sympathize about our broken bits and pieces .. xx
