the Doomsday Machine of Kala Point

Over several years, I've made photos of this beach log at Kala Point.

For whatever reason the log seems like a compelling photographic subject.

At some point, I connected this to that old (1967) Star Trek episode, "Doomsday Machine," featuring a gigantic beach log from another galaxy that could kill entire planets.

How has the Doomsday Machine of Kala Point evolved over the years?

In previous years, the Doomsday Machine is partially choking on sand.  But not so much anymore.

And now it seems to be surrounded by less sand and more rocks
