Intertidal Zone

The intertidal zone exists as a very harsh environment. Submerged at high tide or exposed to the atmosphere at low tide, any life existing here must have strategies for dealing with extremes of temperature and salinity. I tried to capture some of the raw beauty and textures inherent in some of these intertidal inhabitants.
