Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 23, 2014 • 4:54 pm Hi Cynthia, Thank you very much. I hope you experience the lowcountry of SC sometime and Charleston is a wonderful city to photograph. Reply ↓ mpejovic May 22, 2014 • 4:31 pm Great pictures of a beautiful area! We found a big and complete horseshoe crab shell (legs included) while walking on a beach in Delaware. I’ve never seen one on the West coast, so it was a nice surprise. I didn’t know there were sand dollars on the East coast though, so I’ll have to pay better attention next time. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 22, 2014 • 7:54 pm Thanks, Milka. Great finding! It’s exciting to come upon these nature moments. Appreciate your nice comments. Reply ↓ Rebecca Latson Photography May 22, 2014 • 6:50 am That horseshoe crab photo is soooo cool! I’d love to see one of those creatures for real. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 22, 2014 • 12:35 pm Hi Rebecca, Aren’t they? They like shallow waters – unfortunately, I rarely see them alive since they get stranded. Thanks for enjoying! Reply ↓ Tina Schell May 21, 2014 • 7:06 pm Lovely reminders of all things beautiful in our little island paradise 🙂 Boardwalk and Trees is my fav. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2014 • 10:45 pm Hi Tina- Thank you. I enjoyed shooting over the past few months, especially on my morning beach runs. Also worked on my boardwalk series. Glad you liked these. Reply ↓ ae.i May 21, 2014 • 3:57 pm Under which rock did I live so far that I haven’t heard of a horseshoe crab yet? I would like to see that live! Beautiful nature creations Jane 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2014 • 10:41 pm Hi Anja, Oh, they are cool creatures. Quite prehistoric looking — their origin is 450 million years old, so now they are considered living fossils. The only other little fact I know is that their blood is blue. I’m glad you enjoyed this series of island nature. Thank you! Reply ↓ elisa ruland May 21, 2014 • 2:11 pm As I started to scroll through your KI series, I thought about the many sand dollars we used to find on the beach there, and voila a sand dollar! Thanks for bringing me back, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2014 • 10:36 pm Hi Elisa, You have been here! How lovely. I think we have many shared favorite places. Glad you enjoyed this walk down memory lane. Thank you! Reply ↓ Jane May 21, 2014 • 12:58 pm Pliny the younger sometimes says some interesting things also. Pliny the younger. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2014 • 10:35 pm I know who this is, Pliny. Thank you for stopping by! 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Iwan May 21, 2014 • 12:41 pm WOW! Especially love the twilight sky. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2014 • 10:35 pm Thanks, Jane. That was quite an evening. Reply ↓ Love to hear what you think... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
