Driftwood tree decorated with flotsam on Rhossili beach, Gower, South Wales, UK, June 2009 (1) 

Driftwood tree decorated with flotsam on Rhossili beach, Gower, South Wales, UK, June 2009 (3)There are lots of creative people around Gower. Yet again, I have come across an inventive way with flotsam on Rhossili beach. In June I was surprised to find a decorated tree where none should have been. Almost like a poor man’s Christmas tree. A dead driftwood tree had been hoisted up and secured upright in the sand with all sorts of brightly coloured flotsam festooning its branches. It looked so incongruous in the setting, yet provided a wonderful temporary counterpoint against the splendid backdrop of Worms Head and the seascape of Rhossili Bay.

  2. Thank you for your comments. I love to find things like this tree on the beach. It is all so ephemeral – so it’s a delight to capture the image before the ‘art work’ disappears. If you have a moment you might like to look at my post ‘Cable drum at Rhossili Bay’ (18th May 2009) which is along the same lines.
    I have just visited your own blog. You have some fantastic photographs – and I adore your cats.
