another broken but beautiful whelk :) taken as a long exposure about 20:00 after the sun went down...

the last green

with the storms moving in and out lately i've been able to take advantage of the sunset color and the occasional stillness to shoot more marshgrass.  this was shot about 6:00 before sunset as the sun was sinking rapidly, no clouds though.  i had spotted this colorful blade of grass and camped out there for the final moments...

seeing red

this glasswort was shot about 3 weeks ago - i was surprised to discover that i had not posted it!  i think too the weather has been so stormy, rainy, and gloomy in the last few days that i needed a burst of color to brighten things up :)

the inner whelk

not every shell is pristine...and this nicely solved the problem of shooting the inside of the whelk :)

magic hour with a whelk 7

and a parting shot of our friend about 5:00 after the sunset...

going back to #1, i recall how much i loved that dramatic light on him when i first arrived although the technicals of shooting it that way were challenging...but i have to say my favorite light starts around #3 and continues on til sunset...much softer, gentler, and colorful :)  and all over a period of about 35:00!!

magic hour with a whelk 4

the warm bent rays held as the sun kept sinking...although the light itself was rapidly losing its strength.  this was taken 6:00 after the previous post.

magic hour with a whelk 3

the sun sank rapidly that afternoon as the clouds softened the light :) this was shot only 2:00 after the previous post.

magic hour with a whelk 2

magic hour with a whelk 1

yesterday i arrived at the shore and started setting up with a bit less than an hour til sunset.  diffusing clouds were up there, maybe too many for the same show as the night before, but still some good light to be had...while walking the waterline i spied this shell, and smiled :) i spent the next hour with it.  i will be posting my exploration of time and light with this shell in chronological order.

number 1, one of my first shots of it.  the sun is just above the horizon, and so strong and direct upon it, and the contrast between the bright shell and the shadows is wide.

spotlight on glasswort

this year the glasswort does not seem as plentiful as last, and it seemed to be much later in turning fall colors...and was not in the same locations either...very different!

whelk and snail in the surf

this image is a testament to always taking a break and looking around...i was entralled by the marshgrass but needed to pause and stretch my muscles differently for a moment.  i stood up and looked behind me , and there this was!  uncovered by the lowering tide as i was busy with the marshgrass!

ghostgrass in the sunset surf

i went out late that afternoon to shoot at sunset because it was very very windy...and i wanted to explore the fall marshgrass colors with some sweet light :) wind-blown marshgrass has given me some great images!  this one was all done in the camera by one click of the shutter with a combination of slow shutter speed, wide aperture, and a filter to bring out the colors...not magic!
