Location: La Jolla, CA / Settings: F8, ISO 100, 196 second exposure
The texture at this spot in La Jolla, just south of the cove a few miles and popular tide-pools, reminds me of something you'd be looking at under a microscope rather than the life-size it is here.
It's interesting to see relations between the infinitely large and infinitely small, maybe we can learn something.
Another feature to this place is the abundance of tiny sea-snails, you can barely see them as small black specks surrounding the small pools. They were sharp enough to cut the bottom of my feet as I traversed the slick rock!
