Late Season Sea Nettle

This past week brought back the jellyfish. Of those found washed ashore, I did find a few sea nettles among the Lion’s Manes. This was one of them. Winter is coming fast, though.

Earlier this week I was pleasantly surprised to find a large sea nettle floating along the beach. It was probably my last opportunity to add to the series this summer. The big waves made lots of bubbles, which really added in this case.

Kelp in the style of my sea nettles

On a recent trip to Homer, AK with my mother and son, we went tidepooling. It struck me how beautiful kelp is and how like the tentacles of my jellyfish it looks. Here are a few shots processed in the same fashion as the sea nettles.
