Spotted by my granddaughter during a beach walk.
Not sure what’s the star of this photo, the squiggle shell fragment or the sand grains. They complement one another, yes?
Really, the sand is the star of this photo.
… and it is only a moment, when the damp of the receding tide and the perfect angle of the sun seem to suspend grains of sand like tiny gems. No, this is technically not a still life, but to me it is a moment of magic.
