Botanical Beach near Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island is one of my favourite places for inspiration.
The rocks are carved full of holes by the motion of the waves. I call this one my Yin Yang tide pool.
Purple sea urchin. Interesting pock-marked rocks.
A tangle of kelp seaweed.
A rock formation that look like a Chinese painting.Seaweed on coarse sand. A prehistoric-looking chiton mollusc in a tide pool. A seaweed maybe? Or is it a sea creature?
A rock formation that looks like an abstract painting. Tide pool with swaying green seaweed.

This is wonderful, Elizabeth. Beautifully observed details that we might overlook. There are little worlds hidden in plain sight!! I’m happy you joined us.
One of my favourite places to go sketching – it is true there are entire little worlds out there!
Clearly you understand the importance of getting close in photography Elizabeth. Why am I not surprised? 😊 Loved yin and yang.
My biggest problem is that I am so interested in the miniscule things that I often forget to take distance shots. But that’s what Al is for!
Oh me too Elizabeth – hazard of the trade.
Beautiful finds here. What a lovely collection
Lots of inspiration for art – I see several I would like to turn into art pieces…
Loved these, Elizabeth – all of them! Tiny worlds of beauty.
