I liked these photos from the weekend when I was walking with Thor on a beach in Windermere, BC. Spring is a time of transformation, when ground is uncovered to reveal what lay beneath the harsh snowy blanket; when surfaces are uncloaked to show the wears of the winter just passed. There were many of these shells laying on the wet sandy floor that will eventually become hidden with the water as it rises. Take the time to explore what's around you before it starts to hide away again right before your eyes.
A vibrant orange rock, laying among the shades of mostly blue-grey and yellow-brown, eye-catching, like a ruby amongst diamonds would be.
