Foam Creature on Piha's Iron Sands

Foam Creature on Piha's Iron Sands

We often go for walks on the dark iron sands of Piha beach, and this time I saw a seahorse in the foam left behind by the receding tide. Maybe you can see it, too? At any rate, it’s a bit of foam at the water’s edge.

The theme for November of the City Daily Photo community is “The Water’s Edge”. Click here to see thumbnails of other participants.

    A-ha! First thought from seeing the thumbnail…. A modified map of NZ? Of course it is a seahorse!

    That is just super! You never know what you will find when you walk along with camera in hand. That seahorse bubble magic is perfect for this theme day. Kudos on a great shot.
