A still life of beach combings from Chesil Beach a RAMSAR site in Dorset, England.

Still life painting of beach combings

It was my first visit to the shingle ridge at Chesil and while photographically interesting both scenically and for the flora. It seems the driftwood and flotsam was what I took away with me. Some of the species found are Spiny Spider Crab (Maja squinado), Dog whelk (Nucella lapillus), Sea Wash Ball, Egg Case Of Common Whelk (Buccinum undatum) and Blue Mussel (Mytilus edulis). Chesil is one of three major shingle structures in Britain.
