Project 365 2012/29 blistering barnacles

muscle shell with barnacles

This shell intrigued me, not only for the vivid color of the muscle shell but also the small back pack packers that it had picked up along its journey. They look like barnacles that have to be regularly scraped from the bottom of boats.

    Love the photo! 😀
