Art Print Description:
When I visited this forest of future driftwood several years ago, the boat guide told us this was a petrified forest. In fact, that was the only word I actually got from his Spanish explanation of this intriguing little bleached woodland. Fortunately for me, there was a Scandinavian family on the same boat tour and the daughter spoke Spanish and the father spoke English. On this particular subject, however, they seemed unable to do the double translation necessary to explain what we were seeing. But it was such a visually striking sight that I had to search further once I was home.
It turns out that the ecology behind this little stretch of the Yucatan coast near Celestún is not in fact petrification although it does look similar. In a nutshell, land near the ocean is not a static place. It’s a dynamic landscape and the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico like oceans around the world is ever-changing. Where land is being built up in one place, just down the coast, you may find the shore is retreating. The water table here had been invaded by saltwater and the forest above became the twisted land of driftwood you see here.
Of course, it’s not true driftwood yet but I have a feeling that’s where these former trees will end up some day, washed up on a gulf beach somewhere. They already have the same texture, don’t they? I’ve alternated between calling this a driftwood forest and a ghost forest over the years. But whatever terminology you choose, there’s a ghostly beauty to the bones of those old trees that I still find so striking.
Have you perchance been on a similar boat tour that stopped in this driftwood forest on the coast near Celestún? Or perhaps you simply find the ghostly landscape as striking as I do? I do hope you might pause long enough to share what you find most eye-catching in this particular coastal print?

I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
