Driftwoodgrain Patterns (12) - Driftwood on an Oregon beach with interesting texture and natural patterns of whorls and grooves. These wonderful textures, swirls, whorls, and grooves – sometimes dotted or patched with black or white – are natural abstract patterns of woodgrain (growth layers) decorated with encrusting lichen – photographed on a single large heavily-weathered and etched driftwood tree trunk washed up on a basalt-covered beach of the Oregon coast.

  2. Hi, Jo
    Thanks for your comments. I’m afraid that I don’t really know which places are the best for driftwood in the area – particularly the kind of smaller pieces that would be most useful for you to collect and use in creative work. I find that larger pieces, whole tree trunks, can wash up occasionally on Rhossili and Whiteford – but I guess that would be true of most of the Gower beaches. I can only suggest that you keep your eyes open on the strand-lines of whichever seashores you visit, especially after stormy weather. All the best with your driftwood hunting.
