Caspian Green

Today begins a series of 8 photographs from our photo club's low tide trip. (This will be interrupted by Silly Tuesday and a follow-up.) Today's shot is as close to Caspian Green, in honor of the people of Iran, as I could get.

My goodness, I had no idea that this is what low tide offers. Guess I haven't been out in a while. Interesting shot...I'll watch for the rest of the series with pleasure.

Extraordinary rendering. Colors and lights are so vivid. Is it a submarine picture ? It seems, but I'm not sure.
