I've been wondering what to put up for this week's Photo Friday challenge – Tranquility – mostly because my initial idea was to shoot our local beach, devoid of people. But this seemed too simple, or maybe too easy.

But when we went down there yesterday afternoon the beach was strewn with driftwood, there was very little wind, hardly any people, and I spent a happy fifteen minutes or so wandering around taking photographs of tree branches, old palettes, and various other bits of flotsam and jetsam. And each scene seemed tranquil, and the process itself is about as close as I get to being tranquil, so I thought this shot would be a good one for this theme.

Update: I originally put this image in my gallery category but have decided to put it in my portfolio instead.
