One Word Photo Challenge: Navy

September 17, 2014 Oregon 137

We return to the Oregon coast to answer Jennifer’s photo challenge this week.

The mussel shells, which littered wide swaths of beach at low tide, held the most amazing shades of blue.

I took many photos of these lovely shells, often growing with barnacles attached, while wandering the beach at sunset.

One woman actually came over and asked what I was photographing.

Perhaps she didn’t notice the beauty, or had grown so accustomed to them that she didn’t expect anyone would actually want to photograph old shells lying on the beach.

But I found their forms and colors beautiful, especially in the waning light at sunset.

I hope you enjoy them, too.
