This was taken on a day trip to the Oregon coast, at the wonderful blue cobble stone beach of Yaquina Head.
Even in death this purple urchin is still beautiful. Interesting thing about this image is that I did a very similar drawing several years ago. I didn't make that connection until after the photo was taken.
