Photographer's Note

This image shows Achnahaird Beach at low tide.
When tide is coming in, this rock is being totally under water.

You can see where the sand is being dragged around the lower part of the rock and therefore its surface is rather smooth and without any intertidal organisms.
In the crevices and cracks you can find lots of shells clinging to the rocks.

The part of the ground wich lies underwater at high tide, and is emersed at low tide is called the intertidal zone.

Especially for someone like me, living in Switzerland whithout a seaside, it is very interesting and intriguing to see this pageant of nature.

Thanks for looking :-)
