A selection of beautifully coloured and patterned pebbles, souvenirs from my holiday at Rethymnon in Crete, displayed in a blue bowl of water. Every combination of orange, green, grey, black and white – with stripes, lines and marbled effects.
A photograph of the wet pebbles in situ where the sea washes the sand away on the edge of Rethymnon beach.
The picture above and the one below were taken whilst standing in the warm, clear sea water as the waves gently broke on the sea shore. Looking downwards through the water to the multi-coloured pebbles on the bottom, the slow movement of the transparent ripples created a distorting effect. The resulting ever-changing images were like a cross between a mosaic and a kaleidoscope.
