We live on such a rich coastline. If you have not been out there to see it for yourself, you must go. You can explore tide pools for hours and see all sorts of wonderful color combinations. The detail, the texture, the color, it is a photographer's dream. Remember how I not only dropped, but stepped on my camera? Needless to say, I am very hard on cameras. After "the episode" my camera was not particularly happy with me, so at times it would refuse to open and when it did open it would grind as the lense would close. I am very happy it is still alive regardless of its finicky nature because it produced the following photos.
