Puffin Along

Puffin Along

This log cried out for a panoramic scene ~ it was a lovely shape, splayed out at the ends, narrow in the middle and curved along its length.

To add a bit of variety to the carvings, I thought a close up image of a puffin would be nice; these are very popular birds and are seen annually at Bempton Cliffs, local to Sewerby. They are so characterful and unusual, but the challenge was making it recognisable with the lack of colour in the beak.

The area in the middle was a perfect space for a carving of Bempton cliffs, with the sea rolling in on the beach.

There was room on the right hand side for an action pose ~ another puffin ~ in flight this time, and again with a beak-full of fish.
