This may or may not be interesting to you, but it was to me. Different toned boulders covered with barnacles on the seashore. Open shade in the late afternoon. This is a 10 frame focus stack as I was set up just 1.5 feet away from the first rock. Lost my camera eyecup and tripod wrenches while taking this picture. Oh well.
