Shell as far as you can look!!
Mostly Kokkels ( I really do not know how to say it in English, could not find the translation..maybe cockles..??) Also some mussel and oyster
This are common shell along the south Costa of Holland, but still some people find the fishing for Kokkels cruel, because it is the food fore some birds and there is information that every year there are less off that kind of birds. You almost can`t imagine there are not enough if you see this...

Cockles is the correct spelling in English. I like photos like this for desktop wallpapers.
This is a beautiful example of a "busy" scene. I like to use views like this as desktop wallpaper pictures. My only recommendation is that it would work better for that purpose if it were in a horizontal format, since most computer monitors have a horizontal display.

Hi Kristy,
I've been shelled :)
Good low POV with good depth, FG detail, color and exposure..
Nice post & TFS!

Dit is echt een ongelofelijk hoeveelheid schelpen Kristy. Mooie compositie met een goede lage pov. Goed gedaan en TFS!


Hoi Kristy,
Wat een foto. Duidelijk de afvalberg van de kokkel visserij. Je compositie is erg goed met net nog een stukje dijk en lucht zichtbaar. Perfect kleuren en een goede belichting.
