I may as well explain this now. The beach sunset didn't work out but it was good agate hunting light as they glow in the right conditions. When I went to grab this nice orange one beside it was this round thing, which is actually the float from a baby kelp plant. Any comments Jayzoe? Guy.
interesting, especially with the little bit of agate that does seem to be glowing next to it. almost deserves a 'weird things found on the Charlottes' tag. it really must have been your lucky day - I found some replacement options for you, too!
Guy, well, I learned something. I didn't know that kelp had things like this. And that orange stone IS GLOWING!! Of course, with you, I can never tell when you are joking but this does sound reasonable. So there you go. It is a great photo, great macro! Greetings, Jean in NC
All true Jean. The float keeps the fronds up in the water to catch sunlight. This one is about the size of a pearl but they get much bigger. I think if you look up bull kelp it would be the longest plant in the world. And agates glow beautifully with light behind them. Guy.
Why,why,why...did I not find one of these. I have wanted a Black Pearl ever since I read the book a long time ago. It's beautiful. When I come back I need to go to North Beach Secret Beach and Rose Spit. I also need to find a Glass Ball and a Black Pearl. I am so envious right now it is not even funny.
Hopefully you read what it really is Zoe. The B&B takes dogs, Brutus' best doggy-buddy lives there, and B is 4 yrs old.
The jasper in your pic B-n-P is the bright red rock to the crab's right, quite a bit on the beaches here.
I still want one.
Guy, thanks for that information. As you may have guessed, landlubber here. When you said Bull kelp, I thought for sure you were pulling my leg again. ** :-)**
Here in Franklin, NC, we have gem mines where folks can find small rubies, among a few other stones. I have looked myself and red rubies also glow if the sun hits them just right. The agate in your photo is almost blinding in brilliance. I bet playing in the water there is about the best in the world!
Also Envious, Jean in NC
Thanks for all your comments Jean. Landlubber huh? I see some fun coming up!
Great shot! Congratulations! Greetings Klaus
Thanks for that Klaus.
I am still waiting for the Oystercatchers to bring The Black Pearl
Happy Birthday Guy!!!!!! Have you found my Black Pearl yet????? I hope you had a wonderful day on the most "Magical Place On Earth" !!
Thanks Zoe! Wow that was a while ago, foggy tonight so heading out soon for some night shots.
