Gelmiş geçmiş olsun Hoca. Allah beterinden saklasın. Çekim de kavkı da klasik Atatür tarzında... elinize sağlık.
I'm sorry to hear you were ill but glad to know you are on the mend. It's so nice to see another of your wonderful shells. This nicely shaped Lister's Conch is beautiful with nice colors and fine details. The swirls remind me of soft ice cream in a cone :-)
Lovely speciemn, Mehmet, expertly photographed.
Why do so many shells have that amber pigment?
With best wishes for good health,
Every time i see you picture, its the same feeling i get, you have an excellent control over your lightning (flash). Here the diagonal placement and the details on the shell is amazing.. if you share ur lighting setup ,it will be useful for some of us.

Merhaba Prof Mehmet Sir,
indeed this one is a lovely display of its exquisite features. Nicely shaped and excellent shellac colours to render beauty of a superbs creation. You depicted it very well showing the perspective of the pointed conch in a very attractive manner.
Lovely and pleasant presenttion.

Here another fine Macro of this Liste's Conch. The black BG in Your work makes it even better, and always a great note.
Nice to see You back and glad You feel fine by now.
Sorry to hear that you have been ill. Hope you are over it now and back to normal.
Many thanks for yet another gorgeous shell. Both the curves and coloration of this beauty are quite unusual. Your note is fascinating (as we all expect), but as I read it and looked at the picture, an odd thought sprang to mind, and I must ask you about it.
Any biochemist knows that living things usually prefer one form among chiral molecules. Thus we all use D-sugars and L-amino acids rather than the reverse, etc. I'm sort of ashamed that I have a zoology degree and don't know the answer to the question I now pose to you. Among animals such as conchs which show chirality, do both forms appear or is one species always found as a left or right handed spiral? Further, if one form dominates, is it the same form across taxonomic categories? Does anyone know how spiral chirality (or whatever it is called) is determined?
I know this is more than a typical TN comment- feel free to email me a reply if you like. I'm really curious to hear your response on this.
Beautiful specimen of conch shell, Mehmet.
As usual, you have left no room for nit-picking in this lovely image.
Though my knowledge of marine life forms is almost zero, I have a childhood association with a conch shell. In a Hindu temple in our village, the priest used to blow on a conch shell and produce amazing sounds at the time of morning prayer. On rare occasions, he would allow us urchins to give it a try, but all we ended up with would be sounds akin to wind-breaking!
Sorry for the digression and thanks for sharing yet another unique shell image.
Hope you are feeling better now.
Mehmet hocam merhaba

As always some precious photos that swell my collection, and once you commented that I keep them all in one file and I like to show my friends that is a great work you do each document with an explanation of their frequent features. An example to follow.
Best regards my friend

Merhaba Mehmet bey,
You're a master of this kind of captures. This photo isn't an exception: sharp, with great colours and details on the shell, and great contrast between the main theme and the black background. Simple yet wonderful image. Bravo.

The close-up point of view is showing the details an colors of the Lister's conch. The picture is clear and precise. The use of a tripod and of the surrounding light gave a nice photo. Have a nice day.

I sincerely hope you completely over the bout of flu now, this is another beautiful shot.
Stunning detail, I love the diagonal line, beautiful colours. You should seriously think of producing a book on this subject these images are amazing.
All the best, Cheers Rick :)

I think I've missed quite a few of your beautiful shots, Sir.
This is a superb specimen, displayed to its best here!
To think this comes from the Indian Ocean, that too from as close as Ceylon and Burma!
Superb write up, too!Sir!

And here I am again!
And again great and new for me species perfectly presented! You are a master of shell presentation, and your Mollusca lessons give me a lot of information (which I can used during my lectures with students :>).
Really nice capture!
