This is a really magnificent shell that you've captured very well even though I'd never expect to find one of these in the snow!
Very clear details and wonderful colours. The snow looks as if its beginning to melt! Beautiful!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

I was wondering why this shell was on ice but you have explained it well. I'm glad you saved it and are able to share it with us. It's very beautiful with wonderful colors, patterns and shapes.

What a great inventive post showing not only a beautiful shell so rich in vibrant colours but also the power of water and below zero temperatures.
I do have a slight niggle though about Drag Boats that totally destroy the nature that we cant sea on the oceans floors creating a baron landscape beneath the waves.

Wonderful shot of this gorgeous looking colourful shell among the snow. Such a fantastic contrast in colour. Very impressive sharpness and the lighting and exposure levels are perfectly handled. I like your chosen top POV and the simple but effective composition. Kudos.

Hello Bob. You have disclosed one good trick here but unfortunately, we have no snow around here. The trick did the job really well as the shell is in excellent texture and brilliant color. Not around the familiar environment but still wonderful around the melting snow. Regards. Jusni

Seems you had found a red abalone so long ago Bob, and a good thing you didn't throw it away, it is a thing of beauty and one of the wonderful creations of nature, and now thanks to your expert photography we can share its beauty with you, also hoping to see its innards too in a near future!
With best regards,

i can see what drew you to this shell, it's very eye catching indeed. And shown here in this totally alien backdrop of ice and snow you've created a unique feeling and put it in a very unusual context. It does however work very well, aided by the very good clarity and sharpness. Hats off to your vision Mr Shannon.

Hola Sr. Bob.

Interesting notes about your posting!
Nice macro of the abalone and I especially love the pattern in front, nice greenish colours on bright silver. It looks like 'hiéroglyphe' (sorry I don't know in english), kind of old egyptien sign writing!.
Very nicely presented!

We eat chicken too; but the "Abalone" is fast disappearing my friend.
Am so happy you kept the shell; leave it in your will to a grandchild.... it will be worth a FORTUNE in about 20 years from now. Why, you say? Because that's all we'll have left, shells, in a few years.
Your Pal, Mario.
It is a very colourful shell indeed,I really like the effect of the light on the tip.It almost looks like an Asian alphabet character.
The details and textures are well captured.
Nicely composed in the snow.

I am amazed with subject. The combination of shell and snow is superb. It is clear that reproduction of both subject is the best. Colours, texture and tiny snowflakes are reflected with great skill. Well done and TFS.

Your note is giving us detailed information. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the abalone. The reflection of the light are bringing out the colors of the shellfish. The subject is well framed. Have a nice day.
