WINNER ~ May 2015 sea glass contest - photo was submitted by Selkie's Sea Glass, Victoria, B.C. Canada

Where was this photo taken?

I found this chunk of amethyst glass while doing a dig at a tip out site.

This area is exposed during a low tide. 

Date, time of day, and weather conditions?

Weather was lovely, sunny with a sprinkling of rain. 

The sand bar would steam when the sun came out.  Lovely!

What were your feelings or impressions when taking this photo of sea glass?

IN AWE at the size of this piece, about the size of a lime. 

I feel this piece is part of an old glass door knob.

It will command a place in the window, where it will continue to darken in colour.

What kind of camera and/or lens did you use?

I took this photo with my Canon Rebel T5 ISO 100. 

What tips do you have for taking good photos of sea glass?

Sea glass is best shot early morning, or late afternoon.
