The story behind the image

We did a stop at the awesome Burntcoat Head Park where the Codequit Bay meets the Minas Basin. The rocks are brownish red, and when you visit during ebb, you’ll have plenty of photo opportunities.

The sun had come out and illuminated this stretch of green tang. I realized that the shadow formed what looked to me like a bright green eyelash on a closed eye. I found this funny back then (and still do today), so I captured this view. Nice.
