Rock Pool, Stone Cairn and Thrift

06 Jul

1   We’ve spent the evening at Chapelporth and found something delicately beautiful and purple floating in a rock pool.



2   Someone had built a little cairn out of lovely beach pebbles. This photo was taken from ground level with the lovely Mr S and my brother as tiny figures far away behind the stones.

3   Walking up to Wheal Coates, the thrift flowers have faded but their seed heads looked gorgeous against the evening sun and with the blue/white waves crashing below.

    Mr S and your brother play right into the theme, “in the likeness of a human” of your found version of the Inuit Inukshuk. Truly a profound and apt capture. The one blocking out the sun especially =done by family of four perhaps.

    I have never seen a blue jelly fish in the Atlantic, just in the Pacific. On this side of the Atlantic they tend to range of clear to a dieing beached iodine purplish colour. But then again I know nothing about them =just avoid swimming through them.

    The Thrift Flowers -incredible name and image, again a perfect capture.
