I went to walk the tide line early this morning, but was distracted by this:
Atlantic, beach, clouds, cloudy morning, dawn, jetty, New Jersey, ocean, pink, Spring Lake, still life, sunrise, tide line, waves
Form, placement, and color in competition.

Pink is dominant, but it is the luminous quality of the yellow rock in the sun that is most striking.

An almost sad still life. A desiccated jelly fish, dead coral, and a well-sanded organism of not quite clear origin, together, left by a previous very high tide. It was very windy that week, and the wind scooped out the sand from around them.
The spot of pink left on the coral echoes back to a marine life well lived.

A strange, triangular arrangement. The centerpiece, a bit of a carapace, is what initially drew me to that piece of tide line.
The pink shell fragment stood out so vividly on the frozen beach. There was no snow around this particular cluster . . . Almost as if the pink shell had melted it all away.

As perfectly formed as if by a jeweler, this small piece of clam shell looks like filigree. We did pick it up after photographing, and it will be made into a necklace.
