This photo I took during one of my walks on the beach of my town, in Abruzzo (Italy). After a couple of days of bad weather, I usually go to the beach to photograph because it never looks the same as it was before. Near some rocks I noticed an accumulation of shells carried by the water onto the beach during the storm. Looking closer I noticed that the shells along with mussels and stones formed an interesting scene, so I tried to photograph them. I just had to wait a few minutes to get some light on the subject. I preferred to keep the shots where part of the frame is in shadow to create some contrast in the scene. The photo is the result of 8 focus stacked shots, the depth of field was very shallow due to the close distance and focal length.
