Lovely shot Amelia, I never saw such beautifully coloured limpits. Great idea and well done.

Kindest regards, John

Makis, I'm so pleased you like this picture of limpet shells, they're very pretty eh?

Hello Hazel, every shell is a masterpiece in its own right - I took lots of macros of the variety of colours as well - but won't bore the pants off people :)

Pedro, I bet these aren't nearly as wonderful as the shells in Spain, but I'm so pleased that you liked them :)

Dear Art, I think I'll dedicate this photo to you - it matches your name so well. Would you mind?

Everybody is invited Leo - and it would be so nice to see all the photos at the end of the day. Bring your own wine - it's very dear in Norway ;-)

Dear Billy, I really posted this for interest - and it seems that people are interested. I suppose I could have taken more care in placing the shells, but I'm glad you like the result :)

Juan as I said to Pedro, they're are probably far more spectacular shells on a Spanish beach. These limpets are very commonplace, but the colours surprised me :)

Hello Bünyamin, I'm so pleased that you liked the photo of Norwegian limpet shells :)

;-) Hello dear Mira, I agree, it would become too "precious/contrived" - do you know what I mean by that. I left these little shells to the elements, and soon they will all be returned to the nooks and crannies on the beach, and no trace of my footprints will exist there.

Greetings dear friend, Amelia

It's beautiful here too, but I have a bit of a cold and sore throat, so have pottered about here getting Adrian's clothes ready for his forthcoming trip to Malaysia and Germany :(

Amelia Royan on March 20, 2009

That would be nice Mira - so warm and so good for a sore throat - I'll broach the subject with him tonight ;-)

Hello Julie, when your little grandson is old enough you should take him to a beach somewhere and go shell hunting, one of the nicest things in the world to do, both for children and "grown-up children" :)

Greetings, Amelia
