Cinnamon Scroll

Prowling the sandy bottom between the sea-grass beds of Rapid Bay, the carnivorous undulate volute (Amoria undulata) is on the hunt for other mollusks.

Up close that beautiful spiral shell reminds me of cinnamon scrolls while from a distance a tiny Dyson vacuum cleaner.

Volutes were plentiful during our recent night dive under Rapid Bay Jetty and always easy to photograph. I chose this perspective because I love the repeating geometry of sea shells just as much as I love cinnamon scrolls

  1. I am captivate by the images you create and the perspective in which each of us can interpret them. Not only do you possess a great eye for ‘the photo’ you have a poetic sensibility that equally matches the visual. you have captured.
