A windy afternoon at Point Holmes, but nice to get some fresh air and look for nature abstracts in the strand line. Today there was plenty of eelgrass (Zostera marina) washed up on the sand and cobble but most of it was tangled and damaged from being tossed ashore in the waves.
The blades of eelgrass were interesting and with a little looking I found some interesting patterns. The challenge was to find a good composition and photograph it before the light changed and the green dulled or the incoming tide rearranged things. Glad I decided to wear rubber boots today.
