Where was this photo taken?

This photo was taken on my desk after finding this collection that day at Headlands Beach State Park, Mentor, Ohio, on the south shore of Lake Erie.

Date, time of day, and weather conditions?

      These pieces of seaglass were found on Sept. 9, 2013, in the afternoon, following a drizzly, foggy morning, with a calm lake.

What were your feelings or impressions when taking this photo?

These pieces looked dreamy and extravagant, so I tried to capture the translucency and frostiness.

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

   I used my Kodak 5X digital camera. 

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

Train your eye to see where the beauty is, and try to capture it!

Many colors!
by: Bonnie Z,

Thank you, Laura!

I have found a few more pieces of lime green recently, and also a soft yellow, some olive green, blue, and a soft gray, too.

I love the sea foam and soft aqua colors the best.

Still looking for that first piece of red or orange, though!

I get up to Rhode Island from time to time (my sister lives there) and enjoy searching those beaches, too!

Those are sooo pretty !!! Great find & good eye...keep on looking !

It's hard to find cobalt or even cornflower blue in RI ( Rocky Point Beach, RI ( where I go a lot), but I love what you have shown. Keep on : )

PS..I am looking for the lime green as in 7-UP bottles and more of the sea foam color from our coke bottles from the 1950's..

Although...the sea foam could be from windshields too.

They are square in appearance at first, but after tumbling you can't mistake the color.
