[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a photo I captured at minus tide at Oceanside, Oregon. These are Gooseneck Barnacles and Muscles clinging to a rock that normally is under water until low tide.

From Wikipedia:
"Gooseneck barnacles are filter-feeding crustaceans that lives attached to hard surfaces of rocks and flotsam in the ocean intertidal zone. They are easily recognizable by their distinctive long and muscular stalk, which is edible and is considered a delicacy in several Mediterranean countries."

Photo: Brightness, Contrast, Resized, Sharpened.

nice and interesting photo;-)

Wow, cool image Lori! Someone could have a great dinner there for free!


Hello Lori,
I like this photo with the depth, sharpness, and exposure you have allowed. The shapes of Barnacles and Muscles together make for an excellent photo, as this one is.........

Hi Lori,

I like what you did with this unusual cluster of crustaceans. I think if you took a lower POV and got them in line to run towards the back of the frame it would add even more impact. I hope it makes sense. Well done.
