Vertebrae

Vertebrae

It is impossible for me to capture the gentle run of the tide from flats back into the ocean. This photo, though, captured just that in the form of a backbone. The ripples of water over sand immediately reminded me of a lizard spine, or of a fossil of some sort. Ironically, most vertebrates have 22-27 vertebrae. There are 27 “vertebrae” in this small section of receding tide.
