Pure serendipity, finding the association between the objects. I like the fact that you've used portrait, making the 'serpent' almost a casual presence in a bigger picture.

Definitely a prehistoric fish. Regurgitating something nasty as well by the look of it. Smile

Moira always manages to analyse a shot so well, Dougie, and if find myself in total agreement with her: and you have managed to record that wonderful silver sand so characteristic of the NW Highlands.

Looks just like a lamprey to me......

They're coming to take me away, Ha-ha
They're coming to take me away,
Ho-ho Hee-hee-haa-haa To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those
Nice young men in their clean white coats and
They're coming to take me away, ha-ha!

I feel the fish is in the process of metamorphosis, Dougie. Its gills are adapting to air instead of water. It's almost there...

The sand reminds me of Bettyhill...

Love it Dougie. I see a giant Sea Horse complete with fins along the sweep of its back and then a head that"s lying in blackened sand Smile

That's amazing - what a wonderful beach-scape! Loads of detail and what looks to me like a shark's head.

A wonderful white sand, mixed up with such a beautiful variety of colours and shapes. No wonder there's poetry in it, not just for me! Smile
