Sea Jewels

A piece of driftwood lies washed up on Morecambe Bay. The sky is grey with the certain promise of windswept icy rain. The tide is out, - far out. The Bay is little more than a monotone wilderness,
And yet....
And yet, nestled in a hole in this nondescript driftwood a group of small stones cuddle each other. Do stones need comforting? Well, they are part of creation and like the rest of us could probably use a bit of company.
They don't sparkle like jewelery but ensconced like this they are precious. They delight the eye.
I take the photo then get back to the studio before the rain carries out its threat.

Just thought I'd make a change from posting art. But then photography is an art form.
