The Beautiful Beasts of the Sea…

The dishes on offer at the Silver Shell Cafe are amazing… Luxurourous in fact… Himself is heading towards the seafood section, but with shell fish allergies I am more enamoured with the little beasts photographic qualities.

This post delightes me solely in a visual sense… the layer of ice upon which the morscles rest appears as a shimmerling blue background to the brilliant colours of the crustations and the blue/ green rims of the mussel shells (or are they Paua?) are a one of the beautities of nature.

I love food, I love taking photos, this post is one where I endevour in a very ameatur way to do both justice. Enjoy!
