Last week I went to another one of those small coastal reserves and shot these photos with my macro lens. Although it was only around 3:00 PM, the sun had already disappeared below a nearby hill to the west. Winter is soon to encroach upon us.
I particularly like the ephemeral leaf on the “eternal” rock. The former inhabitants of the mollusk shells were likely eaten by those hungry sea birds. Then again, mollusks are tasty. Nature is a tough neighborhood–eat or be eaten.
