During the last workshop at Gooseberry and Allens Pond, I saw a large number of subjects that are great for macro photography. Many different types of shells, rocks, seaweed, and other interesting subjects in the tidepools. Also the shapes and colors of the foliage and old dead flowers were very interesting.
