Wordless Wednesday - Saturday Edition - Sea Glass


Sea Glass

Walking along the ocean, there were pretty little colored pieces of sea glass that had been brought in with the tide.

Some of these pieces were no bigger than the tip of a fingernail - but their color stood out in the wet sand.

Collecting them and piling them together made for a neat macro image.

If you view the larger image, the grains of sand are visible on the colored pieces.

Each time we go to the ocean, it is getting harder to find the glass. This is really a good thing though, as it means there is less of it being thrown into the ocean or along the shores where people and animals can be injured by it.

It takes time for the ocean and nature's forces to wear down the edges - so these pieces have been around for quite a while. I remember as a youngster we would find blue, purple, and red - haven't seen any of those colors in a long time.

  3. You are right - this is a perfect macro subject. I love sea glass, too. I've been collecting it since I was a little girl, and I have jars and jars of it.
