Serendipity Experience 41: Hunting for Chestnuts

Hunting for Chestnuts in Summer is no easy feat! Yet that is precisely what I have been doing since I decided to join the Project 64 Colour ChallengeThis challenge required me to find the colour chestnut and called for some serious 'thinking outside the square'. Fortunately on my beach walk today I found the answer!





When you look at this you may see a vibrant blue bluebottle. But when I look at this all I see is thousands upon thousands of grains of chestnut coloured sand!!!                    
Unfortunately so intent was I upon my newly discovered chestnuts I accidently stepped upon several unsuspecting bluebottles and ended up requiring some vinegar for my stings - the lengths we will go to for a photo!!!!

I do see those thousands of grains of chestnut sand! I was fascinated by the bluebottle also. I had to look them up {I love marine life}. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to seeing your photographs from Sydney as more colors come out of the box.

Great photos! I've been wanting to join in this challenge, but I haven't yet. It sounds fun.

What a great find - chestnuts on the beach! :-) Hope you've recovered from the stings!

This is so beautiful Simone! I've never seen that before, and I probably would have been stung too! You are right, the colors with the sand are lovely, great capture!
