Oyster

Oyster

I found this abaloneoyster shell on the beach the other day. I initially thought it a stone, but someone suggested it might be an abalone shell. Not being that familiar with varieties of shellfish I agreed, due to the pearlescence visible in places. Later almero suggested it might be an oyster shell, and this has been confirmed by Robbie. I’m slightly embarrased that after living at the coast for six years, it took a Vrystaat boykie to identify this.

As the full moon rises over Theewaterskloof Dam, the dead trees cast eerie shadows.

Direction

I have just deleted some posts that I made with amusing photos from other photographers. I have decided that from now on I will only post photos I have taken and text I have written (this may be painful as I’m no writer) myself.
