welcome to another oregon coast tidepool edition of rainbow mondays…
i’ve got a purple finale planned, so i am going to stick the grays, black and whites, and blinding white light shots up front.
gray, black, and blinding white light.
black and white: yin and yang again
grays: plane, kelp and horse, all from our saturday walk
gray: sunday’s gray contingent. seal shenanigans – i like the one airing its hind flippers, and the two fwapping each other in the face with their front flippers.
and of course i like that baby in the foreground, clearly in prime position to do what mammal babies do best.
it’s also fun when a heron flies through the picture you’re taking of the seals. have i mentioned i love it here?
ok, time for some color…
pink: hermit crab on calcified red algae
pink: sunrise over confused rhododendron, in full bloom in november.
red: arguably not my finest photo, but when quinn heard i still needed red for my rainbow, he quickly pointed out that the bucket of sludge i was carrying off the beach was red. solved. (i am not entirely sure of the contents- might have been new oil, might have been used oil, but it was oil, about 3 gallons of it that needed to be far away from my beach, my seabirds, my seals, and my tidepools.)
orange: it’s ruby’s thanksgiving vacation at the vacation house! we love our puppy.
orange: puzzling over this shrub, found in the dunes, showing off in fall colors. are these rose hips? i didn’t stop long enough to check for thorns, but i want to say that a rose is a better guess than a poison oak/goji berry hybrid cross.
orange: nudibranch. this is after i accidentally fed him to the sea urchin, trying to nudge him into a better photo position, and then rescued him from said urchin. sorry urchin, you’re on your own.
orange: neat looking rocks
orange: an octopus casualty melting into the beach rocks.
yellow: small fraction of the reading material available at the vacation house.
yellow: he’s a little sun beam.
green: hobbit habitat from the saturday walk quinn and i took ruby on.
green: the sunday walk anemones; also, we did see one healthy sea star. (orange; not pictured)
blue: the clouds were in the water
blue: yawn, another eagle picture. (same couple, i think. we were just across the street from where we saw them last week)
blue: whale sightings from the beach. reason number one i live here.
blue: boy, dog, dune, moon.
purple: the grand finale, just like fireworks bursting, but all involving purple, so, even better than fireworks.
sometimes i play with photoshop… these 3 are just little corners of urchin photos, blown up and with extra contrast… things get abstract…
ahem, we were having a finale.
only thing better than purple – purple and green!
