Hi friend Haraprasan,
Splendid macro caqpture of these barnacles on the Cerithium friend! Also a nice dedication of our beloved friend Atatür.
A curious shell this with a lot of stowaways on board ;) A splendid macro with great detail. I wonder what all those little balls on the ground are.
My compliments and best regards

Mehmet will love this one HP...I am also a shell appreciation person type....stuff... I spent many days walking the ocean shores in Norcal...my remote California home was only across a long sand dunes to the ocean so it was a daily regimen...Very nicely seen...memories of the good old days for me!

It is very nice macro of sea shells. Nicely composed and focused. It is also great dedication to our common friend and my teacher Mehmet Atatür. Thanks for sharing. best wishes

Hello Haraprasan. Mehmet will be happy to see this. He'll give a good polish and make another capture in his collection. :-) Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni
The influence of Mehmet on all of us seems to be getting deeper, HP :-).
If I am not wrong, this is your first shell on TN.
I wouldn't compare it with Mehmet's work as far as the presentation is concerned.
However, this very complicated looking shell has been well captured as it is.
I guess Mehemet would like to react to it quite vigorously.
Thus your dedication of this picture to him is quite apt.
And thank you indeed for this fine dedication my friend, I am honored. Your Turritella-like shell is so much encrusted with variously sized cirripeds, it is almost impossible to identify it, but no matter, it is a lovely capture which pleasantly reminds us that it is almost the right time to take a dip in the ocean, always a pleasant experience for me! I am a little curious about those similarly sized brownish granulations among the beach sand Haraprasan, any idea what they might be, my friend?
