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.

The blades of the eelgrass (Zostera marina) created linear patterns in the early afternoon light.

I found what look to be bryozoan colonies on the blades of eelgrass (Zostera marina).

    A female feral cart carrying its young or something more sinister? I’ll leave that up to your imagination.

    There’s an old tug boat down at the Comox Marina, lots of character, fun to photograph shooting into the light of the setting sun. Missed the focus by just a fraction, but still reasonably happy with the composition, texture and light in this image.

    This is a crop of a larger image - I liked the spacing of the objects and the back lighting of the hair products in this cabinet and decided to crop it tighter.
