I see beauty in the mess that old tree trunks can create.
At closer inspection there are details that are intriguing, almost man made.

High tide tangled some grass around this old trunk. It almost seems that somebody has carefully knotted the straw around the bleached wood, but it is indeed the waves that managed to tangle it.

The insects have been working under the bark of the fallen tree; now the weather has exposed their tunnelling.
