“One of the assignments in the Winterscapes Photo workshop with John Tunney was to photograph “The Wall”. As a nature / wildlife photographer what could I possibly find on a cold boring man-made wall. I looked at “The Wall” from a distance and saw colors and patterns but nothing too exciting. Then I looked closer and noticed all these beautiful Shells and Barnacles on the “The Wall” to photograph. Photographing “The Wall” ended up being one of my favorite
assignments and a life lesson.” Sharon C.
