This morning, it was cold; very cold. The frost was patchy but, when I went down to the sea at around twenty to ten, it was . . . finger chilling cold.

But the light was lovely.

I would usually aim for a little more variety in a post than there will be in this - but I fell in love with the colour and texture of seaweed on one rock.

I've been scrolling through these pictures over and over. I should get bored because they are all of the same thing. But I don't. I don't know why - I just don't!

I hope you like it too.

This little pool on the top of the rock is about two inches across.

And this is the next rock along. Same seaweed - different arrangement; a sort of skirt round the bottom!

While behind me - is the sea; with three Brent Geese swimming in the path of the sun.

I'd like to have taken the rocks home with me. I'd like to have taken the sea!

(But I think I'll need a little more in the way of storage before I'll try that! Indeed, I'd need a world full of garden sheds!)

  1. I like it certainly. Pretty contrast between the seaweed and the pebbles.

  2. Hello Toffeeapple. At the time, I thought the sea was coming in. Afterwards, I realised the seaweed was such a striking green because it was wet - the sea was going out! (It was still having a good bash at lapping over my feet when I wasn't looking though.)

  3. something spellbinding about the colour and texture of sea washed pebbles and polished bits of shell. Yes!

  4. Very nice, Lucy - I want to take it all home with me too. (I keep on reading your name as Lucy Coriander - I don't suppose that's new to you).


  5. Lucy I love rocks and photos of rocks and I especially love the contrast of the gorgeous seaweed on the rock...really gorgeous

  6. the contrast of seaweed with shingle works so well - the tri tones of greens, browns and blue. Who can get enough of emerald green? Impressed with your captures on a finger nipping day esepcially Lucy

  7. I love the seaweed!Especially the second one down. There is such beauty in the micro-cosm around us.

  8. I agree that hairy deep green stuff is so tactile. Well done for the great photos, I can feel your passion for them! Wonderful:~)

  9. The light was indeed wonderful--it really pops the beige-brown tones against the bright green of the seaweed. Love the contrast in textures!
