Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.

    This could almost be an abstract painting. I really like the colors and the visual flow!

  • Thanks for your comment,Celeste. I could not believe the colours when I saw them. I haven’t been able to find a rock pool or starfish like this sinc.

    Amazing abstract! It could be the surface of the Earth or some other planet seen from far away. The colours and patters are so beautiful and varied.

  • But it was in a little rock pool! I’m happy that you like it so much, Kasia!

    This caught my eye just because of the beauty of the composition and the colors! Now I find out it is critters – even more appealing:>) FAVE

  • Happy that you like it, Carol. These starfish are common in the rockpools at this location. Don’t know what the little shellfish are, though.
