And now that I'm on the orange theme Patricia - nice bright colourful photo of the low tide zone, with great reflections. It looks great for feeding here for the waders!

However did you manage to find the "H" for Hiele?

Warm greetings, Amelia

Patricia Hiele on August 14, 2009

I knew you'd like it,Amelia! Do you think it's worth submitting?

As for the H... Well I thought: why don't I reserve a bouy, just incase I ever own a boat... ;-)) as a matter of fact, I hadn't even read it that way...)

BTW, there are strangly not that many birds on those beaches. But perhaps they are all spread out over all those square miles of beach that emerge...

Kind regards,

I'm not sure anything is worth submitting - I have tried for 4 months now and zilch!!! Some of the winning entries are excellent, but .......

Also I'm beginning to feel short of time for replying, and certainly I am not visiting enough galleries - so it curtails a bit of freedom too.

I bet the waders are there, but not when you are ;-)

Mooi stilleven met die spiegeling in het water. Heel leuk Patricia!

Oh yes, Sonja I am fond of looking for such effects around me...

Gtz, Patricia

This beach at low tide was covered with buoys like that, so I could take my time to pick the ones with the nicest optical effects...

And it fits in Amelia's orange club ;-))

I also took the oyster picture that morning!

Gtz, Patricia

Efrem, I did spend quite some time yesterday evening enjoying you gallery, and our common paths... ;-))

I love your country, so much Cultural Heritage. Where are you from in Italy??

Greetings Patricia ;>)

A subject dear to my heart, and why? you may ask!! I see something here that otherwise would go unnoticed and I wonder why those waders are not here to feast on the juicy treat that lies within that gloopy mud!!

I am, of course, referring to the worm casts that indicate the presence of the succulent lug worm!! they also make excellent bait for fishing ;>)

The worms deserve a break!! VOTED ;>)

About the waders and the worms...

I think the worms are lucky to have so many square miles of beach showing at low tide... I suppose the waders can't be every where at the same time... ;-))

I saw people digging for worms. A cousin of mine is a real champ in that; earns a lot of pocked money like that!

Gtz, Patricia

Oh John, Please excuse me!! I remember reading your comment and planned to reply on it when having the time to check that great list you presented...but apparently never got to it!

I would enjoy living it that area!!! But I have to do with keeping track of the great shot you post! My eyes on Bretagne!!!!

Warm gtz from wintery Belgium! Patricia

Patricia Hiele on December 21, 2010
