Mealabost Shells

Shell pick ‘n’ mix, lightly arranged, originally uploaded by ßlϋeωãvε.

Today’s tag search is ‘scotland’. Don’t ask me why – like most of my tag searches, it is completely random!

This picture has given people a lot of pleasure on flickr so I thought I’d run it – capturing a beautiful aspect of the natural world that we can all relate to.


Along Mealabost beach there is a rocky escarpment which extends into the sea. At low tide it’s fully exposed and amongst the seaweed are piles of broken shells. In one or two places the sea hasn’t managed to entirely smash the shells and there’s this wide selection of colours, patterns and shapes.

Mealabost (or Melbost) is a village on the Isle of Lewis, in the north-west of Scotland.
