    I always enjoy landscape photography out on the wilderness beaches of Olympic National Park. But, sometimes it is also fun to get in close.

    In this case, I felt that the pattern of black, white, and grays, along with the the contrasting elements between the shells of the organisms, would provide for a nice black and white image.

    Thank you, Sarah! The mussels were really healthy, and I was surprised at the way they can co-exist with the barnacles. I "read up" on that co-existence, and apparently they "trade" some chemical reactions, as well as food, in a way that benefits both!

    Thanks again, I appreciate you stopping in!

    Gorgeous picture. Love the tone that the B&W gives it.
