I love how this feels like two separate photographs. When I saw the thumbnail in my message center, the first thing I noticed were the vibrant colors on the driftwood. When I clicked it to watch it in full view, the second thing I noticed is the fact that the movement of the clouds lead my eyes straight to the tops of those mountains in the back. It's amazing how clearly visible they are, but I think you're kind of surprised by that as well, since you mentioned those in your description as well.
I really love the colors, the strong contrast and the stillness combined with the movement. A very peaceful photograph that I'm definitely loving a lot!
