Mytilus … the edible Blue Mussel. Joanna and I had these (farmed) on our trip to PEI a few years ago … with a little garlic butter, they couldn’t be bettered. I can see a bit of nacre layer on the inside surface of that right-hand valve. Nice, quiet, image.

Thank you, D. Good, quiet was what I hoped to convey. 🙂

Your choice of composition, crop, and selective focus is a bit unorthodox, but imaginative and inspiring. I like it that you’ve left the band of lighter color at the top, whereas I probably would have lowered the upper border of the visible to exclude it. How refreshing that we don’t all see the possibilities in the same way!

Thank you, Gary. The band at the top is the ocean’s edge, and I liked seeing the water in the distance. 🙂
