    What a great shot. I’m oohing and aaahhing at how many shells are there. I rarely see anything like that on our beaches here (at least the ones I visit).

  12. April 7, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    Yep, I really must visit Sanibel Island one of these days. You’ve convinced me.

    Ah, the detritus one finds on a natural beach.

  14. April 8, 2009 at 1:07 am

    I love those colours. But so many shells, I hope it’s not a sign of climate change…

    Wow, looks like the waves are really rolling in. Love the bright oranges.

    This is a beautiful photo! But I don’t think I would want to walk on that beach.

  23. April 8, 2009 at 8:40 am

    Hi Tink, this is such an awesome shot, absolutely stunning!

    Hello Tink, when we were young growing up in Miami, we would go shelling on Sanibel Island. Nothing was there except the beauty of the water and shells. Your photo is awesome. The island is so different now but still beautiful.

    Very colorful shot! At first look, I thought they were rubbish left by human. Until I read, “Sea sponges, shells and other fun stuff rolls ashore..”
