A shell along the shore

Seven of us from work went for a walk along the Sacramento Trail just outside Port Elizabeth the other day.  We were lucky to choose the perfect day with the warm winter sun shining down on us.  I had two cameras hanging around my neck so I was clicking away all the way for both work and pleasure.  As usual my eyes were all over the show looking for stuff to photograph and I spotted the big orange and black shell from miles (ok, not miles but at least 50 meters or so) away.  I don't think my colleagues even saw it but as soon as I got there I was down on my tummy trying to get the best shot.  By the time I was done the rest of the group was just about out of sight, but that is what getting THE photo about.

  2. Excellent shot. Very worth laying down on the sand. They missed it.

  3. What a lovely photograph! I'm off to KZN on Friday - wonder if I'll find such a beautiful shell on the shore?
