Sanibel Shells

Sanibel Shells

Sanibel Island is famous for its shelling and I have already featured one shot of its shells…taken on a shell heap, where storms have pushed up the shells to a great depth. This is different. This is the fresh shell line that forms along the surf. Constantly renewed and constantly changing, never the same from moment to moment. This is what keeps the serious shellers walking the beach all day long.

I took several shots attempting to find a harmonious arrangement of shells that would somehow cohere in the frame.

Sony DSC H50 at about 60mm equiv. F5.6 @ 1/1000 @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

Recovery in Lightroom for the highlight detail, Clarity, Vibrance and Sharpen. Cropped for composition.

    I ran across your blog from a Google Sanibel Alert in my email. That’s a very nice photo. I take photo after photo of the seashells and never tire of looking at them. However, mine are taken with only a 5 megapixel camera in my cellphone, carried in my pocket. 🙂 Hope you enjoy lots of happy shelling!
