I know many of you like my photos, so thought I’d share this image with you today.
I often see things in nature that are so beautiful and so awesome that I feel I must take a photographic record of its fleeting beauty.
Take this sea urchin, for example. We found the shell on the beach just after someone had obviously enjoyed sea urchin lunch (or was it supper?) Still freshly coloured as in life, the richness of the colours, the delicate detail of the shell, the remainders of its protective spikes all made up an inspiring and beautiful thing to see. Would it be the same tomorrow? No. But here, I have been able to capture that moment in as permanent a state as possible.
I use these photos for my desktop wallpaper – they’re great mood enhancers! They also form the inspiration for future knitting designs.
