Skywatch Friday - Driftwood on Land

I apologize if you have seen this photo before...I just thought since I was diving back into my Africa photos, I would stick with the theme I started with my Zebra photo below, and rework an old Africa shot for today's Skywatch Friday... it does have a different feel to it than the original I posted months ago...

Have a great weekend, and be sure to take a trip around the world visiting all of your blogging buds that participate in Skywatch Friday...
