At The Beach At Sunset
I think Nara took this but I can't be sure - I also took a few images of the same subject. It was really quite windy. The 4:3 aspect ratio is quite a throw back - I haven't seen that in a while.

Red Breasted Merganser On Rock
I'm impressed by how many different patterns and colours make up this duck's body. It isn't random - there is or was a reason for each bit - they each conveyed an advantage.

Black Sand With Bubbly Water
The contrast on this shot was crazy - I wound up shooting it manually to get the correct exposure.

Kelp on Stone

So you are a tiny kelp seed (what do those look like?)  You attach to a massive hard thing.  How
would you know a few months later you would be big enough to lift that massive hard thing.

Seurat Bathing At Asnieres
This shot really reminds me of a Georges Seurat painting: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte

Not least because I saw it the week before in the British National Gallery.

Claira Splashing With Her Bucket
The beach at Spanish Banks is really flat. When the tide goes out there is a thin layer of water that goes out a long way and it warms up to a reasonable temperature.
