Sea Snail

North Berwick

Well, I cleaned the CCD on my D70. It is not perfect, still a few marks, but much better than before.

Now that the Nikon is useable again, I had my first proper opportunity to try out the Sigma 105 mm macro I bought last week.
I went for a walk along the beach looking for small objects to photograph. This sea snail provided the most colourful picture.
He (I'm guessing) is about 8 mm across and was quite difficult because,
at this magnification, he was slithering out of the frame while I was trying to set the exposure and focus.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

I love my Sig 105, Bill. I think you will too. Great color here!

Imagine what lens looked like from his perspective! Nice colours

At least he held still! Nice colour against the squidgy green. This sensor cleaning thing sounds complicated :-0

He looks a bit like dried lemon peel...LOL !! I imagine he's having quite a feast there on that kelp. Super shot, Bill.

Yuck... far too much detail for my liking. LOL.

Like the idea of the snail 'rushing' out of the shot!!
Ric Yates19-Mar-2005 20:36
Great shot - sure you didn't superglue the snail to the rock? :-)

Nice one Bill, great contrast with the green seaweed.
