Macrophotography--A day at the beach--Crab
Wow. It has been some time since I've made a Steemit post. Summer life has kept me busy--being what it is--with work, family, and everything in between. I've also been using more of my scant downtime to focus on writing outside of Steemit: larger projects spurred on by April's Camp NaNo.
But in an effort to reestablish a habit of posting once again, I thought I'd share a macro photograph. I'm late for @juliank's photo contest, but I didn't want to let that stop me from taking the first step of getting back into a flow.
I have a few macro shots from a trip we took to a beach in Homer, Alaska. I thought I would share them every couple of days as a precursor for a longer post about the trip. Homer is a very interesting town and a long stretch of land extending into Kachemak Bay has one of Alaska's few beaches that isn't entirely made of massive rocks.

My kids love to search the beach for interesting rocks, sea shells, or intact crab shells. If I had to guess, this was a young graceful rock crab. This husk was about the size of a spoon's bowl and completely intact.
Keep an eye out for a few more beach macros to follow!
